What is Twitter, you may ask? Here is the answer from the Twitter FAQ:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Twiter works as a micro-blog, in which entries are limited to 140 characters. When you sign up for a twitter account, you can make entries (called tweets) via the web interface, via a chat message, or even by SMS. In addition to making your own tweets, you can follow other friends who have accounts, and they can follow you. The net effect is to create a kind of public conversation between friends, online.

The way that Mumineen.org is using Twitter is to auto-post the RSS feeds from our Akhbar of Huzurala TUS, our News of Bilad Imaniyah, World Bohra Headlines, Featured Photos, and this very techblog. Each of these sources of content from Mumineen.org are prefixed so it is easy to tell which is which (AKHBAR, BILAD, NEWS, PHOTOS, and TECH, respectively).

If you have a twitter account (and we highly recommend you sign up!) then you can simply follow us, and you will then automatically be notified whenever we have new content in our stream. You can even setup your twitter account so that tweets from Mumineen.org are sent via SMS to your cell phone, for free. Or, you can simply subscribe to our Mumineen.org Twitter RSS feed in your favorite feed reader.

We think Twitter is an amazing tool, and we intend to leverage it for max benefit of our community. So, if you are already a Twitter user, follow us, and if not, then sign up today!
