With all the 'Web 2.0' services come 'Friends'. They aren't necessarily people you've met face-to-real-face or even people you might want to ever meet, but the standard phraseology appears to be 'friends' nonetheless. Today, therefore, I added some new friends to my Twitter stream and to my Blogroll.
Some of them by seeing who had 'friended' me and others on the recommendation of others. An interesting web of connections gets created by all these relationships, meaningless in many ways but indicative of levels of interest anyway.
Yesterday's creation of a short-url service has resulted in my updating my ReadTwitter module to recognise links in a twitter post and convert it to a link. The new version will be available for download later today.
