An article on the blog of Evan Weaver talks about having you logs forwarded to twitter.
It doesn’t sound like such a good idea because you’re relying on the “privacy” protection mechanism of Twitter. This mechanism is acting as a black box so you could as well not be using any protection mechanism.
The idea itself isn’t that bad, having your critical messages (like process xxx not running)- forwarded to twitter might be more useful than having them mailed to some sort of “admin”-account that’s only checked once a day.
SMS Monitoring is dan nog handiger 🙂
