I just noticed that Facebook have stopped pre pending their statuses with “is:” which, in my opinion is a good thing. Unfortunately they haven’t stopped pre pending “is twittering: ” to updates that come in from twitter.
Fortunately Dustin Brewer has come to the rescue by developing twittersync which, as the name sort of suggest syncs your facebook status with Twitter without pre pending anything (unless you want it to). Thanks Dustin! That’s much better.
