Twitter adds support for hAtom, hCard and XFN


The Cinco de Meow DevHouse was arguably a pretty productive event. Not only did Larry get buckets done on hAtomic but I got to peer pressure Alex Payne from Twitter into adding microformats to the site based on a diagram I did some time ago:

There are still a few bugs to be worked out in the markup, but it’s pretty incredible to think about how much recognizable data is now available in Twitter’s HTML.

Sam Sethi got the early scoop, and now I’m waiting for the first mashup that takes advantage of the XFN data to plot out all the social connections of the Twittersphere.
