How to use twitter

Figuring out how to use Twitter was one of the best things I’ve ever done as a .NET software developer, there’s a vibrant intertwined community that deeply cares. Here’s the instruction manual that I wish I had when I was first starting out.

David Burella of Microsoft saw some of my remarks regarding that it would be neat to have it in the windows store and setup a live-coding session with Scott to convert the app and make it reality. Double win!

Once you have above mastered, something cool happens.
