Nats Park Fan Tweets: Improved Interface

Nats fans who Twitter (or read Tweets):

Check out our new interface for displaying tweets from home games. As in the past homestand, your tweet will be included if it includes the #natswp hashtag, and we encourage you to use your section number so we can better display it on the page.

I know there are some of you who don't appreciate the Twitter, so I'll get out of the way quickly tonight. Enjoy the game.

"And, 506, are you by any chance wearing a lampshade on your head right now?"

"It's officially T-Plush TV."

Got it, 506!

Also, I just saw the AXE commercial that people were posting about in prior threads. What the heck is up with that??

Curmudgeon department: It's not Twitter we don't appreciate, it's something less definable, something like, "I have something I find interesting (and you might too), but I don't care to help you get it or enjoy it."

In my other complaint, it's to Dave: Dave, buddy, you asked whether last night's game was the best of the season. A majority said no. (Don't trust a journalist with data.)

Where's that rain they were forecasting? I guess the rain cloud is over my head.

It is awesomely awesome in its awesomeness, is what the heck is up with it. As far as I'm concerned, AXE has the inside track on naming rights for the stadium. AXE Field? Axe Stadium? Axe Park.

Attaboy Zim! Guess the shoulder is feeling okay!

Whoa. Back to back.

dude. you've been griping the same gripe about twitter instructions since it was introduced. i gave you instructions. i gave you a link after i googled "how to twitter," which, by the way, took about .427 seconds. it's no harder than setting up a new email account or facebook or whatever. figure it out.

New post, btw.

The new interface is slick, props to the development team. Are there plans to be able to select tweets from a certain game?

That's a good idea, one we had not considered. We'll discuss. Thanks for the input!

Question about the #natswp Twitter feed. Is it moderated in some way? I sent about a half-dozen tweets last night (as carlosdelvaca), and while they all made it to Twitter itself, only two of them made the Post's site. Not sure if there's a technical problem, or if the others were somehow deemed unworthy.

And not to point out the obvious, but the section-number piece doesn't seem to be working properly. I do like the interface though.

There is some basic moderation, but that's it. We had a few problems last night, however, including the section number piece you mention. Our efforts to fix it today have been hampered by the Twitter outage. Should be fixed soon -- will keep you posted.

Thanks -- and sorry about that.

Yeah, with all the Twitter problems this week I figured that didn't help. None of the tweets I sent from the ballpark Thursday afternoon even made it to Twitter.
