Twitter plus Flash as a simple CMS
June 30, 2008 | By Peter Bihr |
Patrick, one of the awesome flashers here at Panorama3000, has coded this neat flash website for an actor friend of his. Usually I’m not a huge fan of flash sites for all the well-known issues around flash (no direct links, lousy accessibility etc). What I like about this one, though, is its smart implementation of Twitter*: The actor can post news updates directly through Twitter and thus doesn’t have to learn anything about handling a Content Managing System. Twitter’s RSS feed is sucked straight into the flash site. Neat, eh?
- Today may be a bad time to use this example since Twitter has been down most of the day. It’s a great example though, so please check back later in case it’s not working right now.
