Follow Bitwise on Twitter
« on: June 12, 2018, 07:53:02 pm »

I noticed that bww bitwise works is making some efforts to post more often on twitter about their OS/2 port of Qt 5 and other projects.

I recommend the people with smartphones and twitter to follow them. You can enable on an smartphone the little "bell icon" so you can get a notification on each tweet.

Also at OS2World I have the twitter account that post tweets about each news on the site.

Hello Martin,

Thank you very much for raising it here. We planned to do so ourselves, but you outrun us :)

Yes, we will now post regularly to both our Twitter and our Facebook accounts. We found out that people are unaware about our daily work and therefore there might be an impression that we do nothing between releases. This is of course not true. We have to do *A LOT* of work in between. It's just so that sometimes the connection between what we might work on and the applications we eventually deliver is not obvious for an end user. A typical example is fixing the compiler (GCC) or its main library (LIBC). Regular postings to our online resources are meant to fill this gap.

So those who are on Twitter should follow us just as Martin described. Those who prefer Facebook, can use this link to subscribe to our page and get the same information that appears on our Twitter.

In our posts we use hash tags extensively to simplify following only specific topics if you need. Tag examples:

- #progress — rather noisy (and somewhat "technical") topic were we post interesting findings during our daily development work
- #release — posts with release information for various products we maintain
- #qt5 — Qt 5 related posts
- #NNN (where NNN is the application name) — posts related to the application named NNN (e.g. #injoy, #unzip)
