Not sure where to post this one, but I suddenly thought "Wouldn't it be cool to have the tweets from @ItBitesBand (the Band's official account on the Twitter social networking site) re-tweeted directly to a post on this forum?"

That way, people who either aren't on Twitter or who seldom check it can also share the pleasure of status updates and random pics because the "tweets" (that is, the updates from the @ItBitesBand account) will have been directed at a new sticky post at the top of the "It Bites Chatter" category.

Good idea? Bad idea? I could look into the tech behind this if it's deemed a reasonable thing to progress...

I know they do this on Steve Vai's forum not sure if it's automated though or someone doing it manually

Mike - knowing (and loving!) Mr Vai as I do, it's probably firstly passed through a digital whammy effect and spliced into auto-harmony first! Wink

The tweets may be fairly inconsistent depending on what the band are up to, but I reckon it might be a good idea, especially during busy periods. As far as I know, 3 people associated with the band have access to the Twitter account, so it's as "official" as this forum is!

For those of you not on Twitter, what do you think?

Here's the latest picture, posted on Twitter about an hour ago. Seeing as it's already in the public domain I'm sure the guys won't mind me posting it here...

That's Paddy. He's JB's keyboard tech/guru, he's the former keyboard player in the Urbane and is an all-round sorted geeza!

If the twitter stuff contains anything resembling news then surely it should be a given that it also gets posted here. (Especially for those of us who don't go a bundle on all them "people chunnering on about themselves" sites). Very Happy

Well, given the interest and good photo that's already gone up, it sounds like a good idea to me - although I guess it sort of defeats the object of signing up to Twitter!

Good pic though! That's the type of stuff that can keep people informed as to what the band is up to - as has been posted in recent threads.

A good idea methinks.

Very Happy

Embarassed Blondey, Paddy is the nice chap who came and stood next to us at Manchester. I had a quick chat with him if you remember. Thoroughly nice chap he is too. Very Happy

Look just below the "CATH" single cover artwork and you'll find it there...
