Well, it may be a spurious trend, but if it’s the way the world is speaking (at least a part of it), then the Bioscope is going to follow. So this is to announce the creation of the Bioscope’s very own Twitter presence. If you don’t know what Twitter is, it’s a micro-blogging service in which you are restricted to messages of no more than 140 characters (called tweets).
The way I’ve set it up is that every post made on the main blog will now also appear on the Twitter feed (i.e. the first few words followed by a hyperlink), while I’ll be using the feed to add short news items and musings on early and silent cinema, as the mood takes me. The most recent of these you can see on the Twitter RSS feed on the column to your right. It’s an experiment – it may augment the service, or it may not, in which case I’ll dump it. We’ll just have to see.
To follow the feed, go to www.twitter.com/thebioscope.
