Cumulus twitter post Idea for update

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Cumulus twitter post Idea for update

Postby kb0mgh » Tue Feb 14, 2012 12:51 am

I would like to see a advance twitter function on cumulus for an example the cumulus recorded a very high wind it will auto post it to twitter to a @username like a TV station, NEWS service, or SKYWARN twitter users at the time it happens so others see that there was a very high wind gust from my weather station. It will have the ability to auto report major weather events to the twitter account with hash tag customizations and a couple of twitter users like the local TV station and any other twitter users that would find that record and also post the location on it too.

thanks,
John C.

This would certainly be more interesting and useful than the current setup!

Sounds like a good idea....configurable to report extremes.

That way it will help not flood the twitter feed with average readings only it will post on twitter for significant weather events as they happen. Also if they other users want to customize the regular twitter post they can on that too. It would be nice to see a way to post the same idea as above to Facebook too since a lot of people use Facebook.

Thanks,
John C.
