      Love you guys adding Twitter and live streaming concept, really great to see TWC9 evolve!

      Why on earth do you want to require people to use Twitter when we've already joined Channel 9 and you have this setup already?

      Thanks everyone for the feedback, this is our first test so we'll evolve this over time Smiley


      @jlomax - To your specific question, we used Twitter because it's easy to see a stream of questions come in (instead of reloading a forum page), there are lots of developers on Twitter, and it's a lot faster to take questions via Twitter instead of building out a Channel 9 live chat feature.

      I think using the twitter account to take questions is a great idea. I have shifted to using Twitter versus forums for my own business because of that.
