The realtime connection from Twitter to FriendFeed is back! (thanks to Twitter's "birddog" api)
Very good! - Kurt Starnes
Sweetness! - Alex Scrivener
wow, that makes actually want to use Twitter. I may just go tweet something. - Mike Nencetti
It should be even faster than that Jorge, but our systems are getting near their limit. I hope to have it down to 1 sec sometime next month. - Paul Buchheit
Thank god! - Miguel Caetano
Great news! - Rasmus Lauridsen
Jorge, everyone can access the streaming api, but you need an agreement to follow a large number of ids. See - Paul Buchheit
Thanks Paul. - Roberto Bonini
that cool. Thanks Paul - Peter Dawson
Yay! That's fantastic! I was getting really bored of manually refreshing it every time I tweeted. Especially from my phone. :) - Jandy
Thanks Paul, nice work :) - LANjackal
wow no posts on the majors yet - usually within mere moments of an announcement we'd have posts. - Allen Stern
Thank God. - AlpB.
cool! - Barbara R. S.
What was the problem? - Özkan Altuner
Now....if you could just get rid of the @ replies again. I would be very happy. - Chris Nixon

^ That's probably the best part of this announcement, TBH. Good point - LANjackal from IM

awesome, keep it up guys, i knew you would not let us down - Iggy Mwangi
You didn't break the FF Facebook app while you were at it, did you? It hasn't worked since. - Tim Tyler
Oh, awesome!!! 12 seconds :) I can finally go back to Twitter (...okay no I can't I've turned into a Friendfeed junkie..) but prior it took hours upon hours for me to see a feed. Dumb I am, I never suspected a problem LMAO. - Hollywood Amanda
Thank you! - Micah
Awesome news :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
eyvallah hacı - Mücahit Yılmaz
Cool. Haven't tried it but yay! - Franc, a rememberer
Yippee! I love real time - Technogran
Paul ?? Twitter updates facebook status and then facebook creates a new feed here on friendfeed. So we have same entries both from twitter and facebook on friendfeed. Could you guys please work on how we can avoid duplicate entries? Thank you. ( If there's already a way to avoid this, pls let me know) - mcd
Cool, thanks, Paul! :-) RT Twitter updates have been missed. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
And just as I say that, I see my tweets are not coming into FF in real-time. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Kol. I just tweeted and it was here before I could get out of Tweetie and launch Safari... It's working :) - Johnny from iPhone
awesome.; thank you a lot.. - Jaap Willem
Oh, so nice to have that back again. - Hutch Carpenter
Johnny, cool. Just me then. It's still slow. Maybe it's FriendFeed then? - Kol Tregaskes
It truncates retweets, even in the middle of a link... - Vezquex
seems that there are only 140chars allowed for a tweet (on FF) and the new twitter retweets are being translated on the way through to old RT @name style - thus are too long. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
not working - Serhad Makbuloğlu
