Find and subscribe to your Twitter friends on FriendFeed

We've just added a friend importer for Twitter so you can easily find and subscribe to your Twitter friends who are already on FriendFeed.

You may already have won! Your Twitter friends could already be using FriendFeed! Find them today!

We're looking forward to extending this capability to more services. As always please let us know your bugs and feedback!

DragonI said...

Zee said...

Awesome news guys, thank you. Please add "imaginary friends" though for those twitter friends with no twitter account...Also, please allow us to reply to tweets via im! Thanks again.

When are you guys/gals going to add Facebook, Hulu, Joost, etc? Not all of our friends (and family) are twitterholics!

Chris Charabaruk said...

How soon until this is expanded to other services, and not just Twitter?

Dave said...

How about also checking your imaginary friends to see which ones now have FF accounts? I've already destroyed my Twitter network, but I'd like to get rid of as many imaginary friends as I can.

U guys ROCK!

Great feature, thanks! It would be awesome to be able to import my twitter stream into a friendfeed list so I can use FF as my one and only twitter client! Right now it takes me 5 steps to create an imaginary friend, add to list, etc. FriendFeed would be the ultimate twitter client because of list capabilities, commenting, and everything is web based.

This is great, however, you need to pay some attention to selecting friends. I want to make my lists more effective and I need to be able to search for friends according to the lists they are in, not just 'all' or 'none'. If I'm missing something, please let me know but I have too many friends to pick them all manually...

Does this keep contacts in sync so that as you add more to Twitter they automatically update in FF?

Audacious Bloggers said...

Brilliant work guys! Been waiting for this for quite some time.

Kevin said...

wow.. this is really useful. nice work FF team... cheers!!

I've noticed that some users have twitter accounts that are not theirs linked to their friendfeed stream. I know there is no good way to verify things like this but was wondering if you could keep the list when you sync to only users with one twitter account in their stream. maybe just as an option. that way I don't have to prune off friendfeed users who have brentspiners twitter account in their feed.

Adding the option to add the friends that don't have a friendfeed account as imaginary friends would be a killer feature ;)

Hi Friendfeed! We want:

Todd Lohenry said...

Now that we have this tool, you need to give us a way to search for and select friends that is somewhere between selecting "all" or "none". I have too many contacts to manage manually. Please fix this!

David Ing said...

This may seem redundant ... but could you please create a "fan" group on Facebook. I would like to become a "fan of Friendfeed", and there's no way to do that.

Of course, there are people who will never leave the walled garden of Facebook, but I see value in Friendfeed. Maybe they will someday.

hi, I didn't know where to post this comment, so excuse if it's not relevant to this post.
is it possible to make it available for users to change their friendfeed Language direction? I am a persian (farsi) user that is a Right-to-Left language, but my profile page is left-to-right and it makes it a little difficult to read.
I mean you provide a feature that users in their account page choose their preferred direction.
Thank you for your great service.

“@PaulKinlan One final step missing - how do you get twitter replies in FF ? I tried RSS and no luck.”

Caleb Elston said...

Late to the game, but this is super sweet! (plus it's cool to see myself in your list Ben :)

mark said...

If it had the ability to auto-create imaginary friends for Twitter friends that aren't on FF, that would be brilliant
