Twitter Your CAP Alerts from DM-OPEN

I recently added “tweeting” to my prototyping code base.  I can now poll the DM-OPEN Server for an organization and tweet any new alerts to followers of a given Twitter member.  You can see the results by following “grandpaham” on Twitter.  In fact, you can see it live if you have access to any Emergency Management Software that is compatible with DM-OPE’s CAP alert interface.   If you post an alert to the Interoperability COG, it should show up as a “grandpaham” twitter.  Kudos to the folks who developed twitter4j. The code and examples work as advertised.  Using Twitter can act as a DM-OPEN notification service.
