A student of world languages (as opposed to, say, one of cosmic or of antimony and kohl),
will instantly recognize the poetic value in the transliterated Ukrainian word "odnoklasnyky" as opposed to its 
transliterated English word "twitter" or "tweet."  If only we lived in a world of Ukrainian allophones.

The TIG has had a Twitter function, accessed via the web interface, for quite some time now, yet remains to 
reach its fruition.  Any ideas along those lines are solicited and a winning entry will be transliterated 
appropriately, though a better word than "odnoklasnyky" (consonant grasp far from fundamental, almost insidious).  
See the web URL http://tig.colorist.org/wiki/Twitter_feed

Ukrainian TIGers most welcome to chime in.
