While it sounds crazy, some of us do not actually have twitter accounts and really do not use twitter at all, so we don't see tweets from
@StackStatus. This is especially true for users behind corporate firewalls where Twitter access is blocked.
So when there are access issues, the first stop for many users is StackStatus.net, but it seems that updates there much less frequent than tweets, especially during an outage, and usually only after the fact. Additionally, only major planned events are ever announced in advance there. Minor outages, such as the recent chat migration were never even mentioned, so unless someone was following @StackStatus on twitter (which would require an account), or thinks to check twitter feed, they won't be up to date on any on-going issues.
I realize updating a blog while in the middle of an outage or to announce a minor (and temporary) outage due to maintenance is not a productive use of time, so can StackStatus.net display the twitter feed, or even better, can tweets from @StackStatus automatically be added to the blog? It would save many users from having to check 2 places every time they have an access issue.
Note there is similar sounding but essentially different suggestion: Add Twitter status to StackOverflow maintenance page - about attaching the twitter feed to the maintenance page for Stack Exchange sites. This request is different in that it is about posting twitter feed posts to the Stack Status blog.
