Video demo: Building a corporate Twitter solution using LiveCycle and AIR

In a community blog post, Marcel van Espen from the Adobe presales team demonstrates how you can use LiveCycle and AIR to build a Twitter solution for your organization.

… you can use LiveCycle to build a process and an AIR application to publish tweets to a corporate Twitter account, where you have control on what’s published or not. Part 1 focuses on building the client with Flash Builder 4 with the LC Service Discovery plugin. In part 2 you will see how to archive all tweets in a PDF/A format within LiveCycle Content Services.

My FrameMaker tweets

I have been tweeting recently about FrameMaker concepts and tips. In particular, I have been tweeting about the basics of structured authoring in FrameMaker. As I stumble upon interesting things, I plan to continue tweeting about the Technical Communication Suite.

You can access current (and future!) tweets at http://bit.ly/3MgV5P and http://bit.ly/3J1Oc1. Follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/samarthav.

Do let me know your thoughts. If you want me to tweet about some particular feature in FrameMaker, do let me know as well.
