    Unsure if this is planned, but on a lot of events you see that they put a monitor with a live twitter
    feed of people using a specific hashtag (like "just saw a lot of spigot members! #spigotmincon") <- example.

    No I mean a hashtag, like people use it (Person a: " Just saw md_5 on minecon #xxxxx" , Person B: "Spigot booth is too crowded :( #xxxx") and it shows all those tweets (from normal members) that used that hashtag on a monitor somewhere near the spigot booth

    Like this for example (but then smaller , most likely 1 tweet on the screen that loops/changes and no unneeded info)

  6. They should actually do this. It's a way of interacting with their supporters :) But on the other hand, it could get spammed.

    Spam = twitter report = risk of getting banned. And you can create simple checks to only allow tweets of people registered for x months if you make the lay out yourself (9 javascript lines)

    I like this idea. :) Might be hard to implement on such short notice, though, as we'd need a dedicated monitor for that. Currently, the monitors we do have are being used for the promotional video and a Spigot demo.
