Hackage on Twitter

The Haskell community is very active. New packages are released to the central Hackage server each day.

If your like me, and like to keep up on all the different new packages, you can now follow Hackage on Twitter.

But be warned! There’s a lot happening, in the 3 days Hackage has been online, it has already tweeted more than 70 new releases.

The Twitter account is running a tool called hackage2twitter, build on top of the feed2twitter library for tweeting posts from a RSS or Atom feed.

If you want to pipe your own feed to Twitter, you can use the feed2twitter library or executable.
