Get tweets about new questions on Stack App sites
I am fed up sitting all day refreshing the home page waiting for that elusive question on symfony that I can answer and who uses RSS these days? So using tags and massive fonts you can now get a tweet with a link the the question title in your update stream. It uses twitter oAuth and makes friends with http://twitter.com/stackoftwits. You will get @updates from @stackappbot. You don't want to follow that account really as if your friends all follow stackappbot you will see a lot of stackappbot posts in your stream! I didn't like the idea of using DMs as this usually generates an email which could also get annoying.
Searches on the following sites are possible:
Also all the current in beta stackexchange sites.
As more sites come out of private beta they will be added.
I've built this using symfony but the I have been trying to make the StackApp api code non-library dependent. I do plan on releasing the code that handles this once I've tarted it up.

Now working with API 1.0 thanks to my PHP wrapper which will be released once I've finished it, I've only implemented the parts I need so far.
