This is why I think that.
When I post an item to my linkblog, it also goes to an RSS feed.
I have an IFTTT app that watches that feed, and when something new shows up posts it to this Twitter account.
I also ping the rssCloud notifier, the one that’s pointed to from the element in the feed. It tells an app how to be notified immediately of an update.
Here’s the thing. The Twitter feed gets the update immediately now. Sometime in the last year (?) or so it started being instantaneous. Unless they’re polling the feed ridiculously often, they must be hooked in through the element.
If they did, I think this is very cool.
