Proposal: How about a way to bring Twitter into Ode?

There's something about Twitter. It's so easy to tweet out links, to retweet, to have 140-character discussions ...

But it's a bit harder to bring those conversations into your own blog in a more permanent fashion.

What I'm thinking about doing doesn't seem all that hard. It could be a browser-based program -- maybe a Firefox add-in -- that takes a tweet and plows that text (with links to the original tweet) into an Ode post, so anything I write, retweet, or just want to offer up can appear in my own blog without a whole lot of trouble.

It could also be a Perl script (or Javascript, or Python, or Bash) that outputs HTML to paste into a file.

I'll be thinking about this ...
