My thought with this FanPost is simple: create a place where people can post any news that they catch on Twitter or elsewhere to make it easier for people to see the latest without needing to scroll through several hundred comments. As each new update thread in the Seattle story stream seems to hit 300 comments within a few hours, I'm finding it somewhat difficult to do a quick check for the latest tidbits of news. Obviously, the biggest news items get their own story or Fanshot fairly quickly, but a lot of other interesting stuff gets dropped into the update threads and can get quickly buried and completely missed by anyone that doesn't happen to be active in the thread at that time. So, my thinking is that a thread dedicated solely to juicy tweets, with only limited discussion within this thread, would allow someone that is doing quick periodical checks throughout the day for the latest news to jump here where there might be ten or twenty new comments in a day instead of trudging through the latest update thread that may have a couple hundred new comments in a matter of hours. This would be particularly useful for people like me who try to do a quick check on their phone when they're at work and/or on the can, as the comments often load really slowly in the big threads and it's a bitch to scroll through to the bottom looking for any tweets or other new news items.
Use your own discretion as to what is/isn't worth posting. Also, I'm not saying don't post stuff in the update threads as well; in fact, my hope is that most of the discussions will continue to take place there, and this would be more just for people to get caught up more quickly. Hopefully anything posted in the updates will migrate over here, and vice-versa. Or, it doesn't actually make as much sense as I think it does and it will go unused. Rec it if you like it so it stays for a while, ignore it if you don't.
