Silly idea and don't know if it even possible but....

Seeing that Hashtag is so 27.5 trendy at the moment, would it be possible for Vorb to have accounts where those hashtag are used =} Twitter, Hipstergram, etc and the pics get picked up here in a thread ?


yeh... I use the #gram a bit to post my pictures. If I actually want them to go to Facebork or Twatter then I can get the gram to post them there. If there was an easy way to share those pictures to here then I may just do that too... but I have no idea how it would work? How would you link up a user here to what someone posts on the gram? Where would it post it here? In a new thread each time? Or is it simply a random feed of everyones photos who has put the hashtag #Vorbgramtwitface ?

Remember pxt to vorb? I forget how it actually worked - think you set up a target thread and then all of your pxts went there until you changed it?

I recall Tama documenting lots of events (including things like "Tama is moving to Chch") on pxt to vorb based threads.

That was the beauty of it though - you didn't need a smart phone! Anything
Pxt capable was all good - Vorb was ahead of the #gram!

Yes. I will play with this.

Only problem it'll pick up anything with that hashtag, so it could end up hijacked and showing stuff on the thread you don't want.

There was a prolific Malc-a-thon yesterday. I think Twitter must've been offline or something?
