Get Lync News via Twitter

The Lync News feed that I maintain was initially put together for the Lync News app. I then expanded the ability to see that feed via the official Lync Nws website at http://LyncNe.ws. Now you can get it via Twitter. Just add @LyncNewsTweets as a follower and any new articles gathered by the Lync News feeds will show up in your Twitter feed.

I was stumbling around the Internet looking for ways to improve the performance of the Yahoo! Pipes feed that drives Lync News. I came across an article that explained how you can use a Yahoo! Pipes RSS feed (or any RSS feed for that matter) to drive a Twitter account. This example involved the use of Hootsuite which I have rarely used over the years. So I logged in, spent 5 minutes configuring this feature and BAM! It works!
