Tweetcraft: Yet Another Excuse for Warcraft Nerds to Avoid Reality

Posted By on Fri, Jul 3, 2009 at 9:32 AM


So you've recently defeated a horde of Orcs in the Outland but before catching the next Zeppelin back to Azeroth you'd like to tweet about your battle. Prior to yesterday, your victory tweet would've had to wait until you logged out of World of Warcraft and onto Twitter, thus leaving your elf mage (or whatever) vulnerable to attack.

Lucky for you (nerd) Tweetcraft, a new in-game Twitter client for WoW, is here to help you out in your time of need.

According to the Tweetcraft website, you'll be able to:

* Send/receive Tweets in-game (Immediate sending reloads your UI)
* Queue Tweets to send when it's more convenient for you
* Upload in-game screenshots using TwitPic
* AutoTweet when you log in, enter an instance or get an achievement
* Extensible so that Add On authors can register messages or events to AutoTweet

Imagine the possibilities! No, seriously, you nerds go ahead and imagine the possibilities. I'll be busy, oh I don't know, not living in my mom's basement and not having a virtual relationship with a warrior dwarf healer wizard thing.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
