Twitter feed changes

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I've been doing some work over the weekend making the Twitter feeds a little more normal looking since we integrate the feeds with Discord. As a result we've changed the handles for the Freedom and Chaos server. Release isn't changed yet as we're still tracking that one down and will let you all know when that's fixed, but for now the new URL's are:

 

Independence: https://twitter.com/WO_Independence

Deliverance: https://twitter.com/WO_Deliverance

Exodus: https://twitter.com/WO_Exodus

Celebration: https://twitter.com/WO_Celebration

Pristine: https://twitter.com/WO_Pristine

Release: https://twitter.com/WO_Release

Xanadu: https://twitter.com/WO_Xanadu

Chaos: https://twitter.com/WO_Chaos

Golden Valley: https://twitter.com/WO_Goldenvalley

 

We'll be updating the Epic servers soon too and will announce when that's done

Does this mean we need to set up notifications manually (I have some of the notifications popping up on my mobile) - or is it easier to set it up in Discord? I think I'll need to dig a bit into Discord app - unless somebody feels like to put some tutorials together :P

The wurm online official discord has twitter feeds for each server, sending notices such as villages being founded and disbanding, uniques, and server alerts, you can setup your own alerts system if you want using server webhooks though

No, no plans since it's all uniform

 

Previously it was all over the place with no uniformity, freeserv1, freedom002, freedom0003, freedom0004, releaseserv, pristineserver, xanaduwurm

 

Background server names of freedom001-7 will stay as is

Have they gotten new links yet?  I notice the old "epicserv" ones are still working

Unfortunately doesnt look like ever. 

 

Given we don't have access to the twitter accounts and Twitter doesnt feel too keen on helping us. Options are to leave it as is or to port it all to brand new accounts

Doesn't it seem wise for CCAB to control its assets?  For example if someone makes a really toxic named deed on an epic server that can't be removed from twitter without ownership and I don't think that's smart to have on official twitters, plus they can't be made to look fancy like the freedom ones

Agreed, but it means swapping and archiving the existing ones. 

 

If Epic players are open to it, I'm happy to organise it asap

Looks fine, but will the recent view on Discord be preserved, which allows an overview about all Freedom servers at one glance? Because that one is extremely useful at times.

If you mean the freedom / epic / chaos twitter feeds, then yes.

The colors of the twitter accounts actually match the kingdoms now lol.  Before when twitter used the default egg icon for the profile pic, the kingdom colors were mixed up, and so with names like epicserv 1,2,3,4 and the wrong color for the server, it was easy to get confused about which one you were looking at
