DBO gets not one, but TWO Twitter feeds

I was convinced, after MUCH debate, to add a news-only Twitter feed to HBO a little while ago. Turns out, it's a pretty useful tool for folks with Twitter accounts who want to keep track of new content from their favorite fansite. (We ARE your favorite fansite, aren't we? AREN'T WE?) So the question of a Twitter account for DBO was never really about 'do we do it?' but 'how do we do it?'

The crew of DBO is much more socially integrated than the old guard at HBO - there was a lot of push for a fully interactive feed. You can tweet us Destiny news, we can tweet you DBO posts, and we can answer your questions. But what about people who really just want notifications of new newsposts at DBO? Should they be left out in the cold (or have their Twitter stream inundated with discussion they're not interested in) just because they don't feel like jumping to our front page every once in a while?

Our solution was simple: we've got TWO feeds. One is just newsposts - it's a mirror of the HBO Twitter feed. You get a headline, and a link to the full article if you want to read it. The other includes these posts, as well... but ALSO allows full interaction. A number of people will be monitoring the feed, and responding to tweets from you, the public. You get to choose how much DBO to put in your Twitter stream. Either way, you get a GORGEOUS new piece of artwork from Levi to look at - please do NOT miss it.
