COMMENT: If you have no idea what Twitter is (http://twitter.com), what a 'tweet' is and all of that, this is a good way to get an idea what the craic is all about! Also a useful place for regular tweeters to perhaps pick up on useful addresses. Looks like it works by simply picking up on the #genealogy hashtag, but not other tags such as #familyhistory. Still, useful!

Thanks for posting this.

We actually focus on three tags:
#genealogy, #familyhistory and #familysearch. We also filter content.

You can read more about the technical details at the bottom of this page:
