Default Artist twitter accounts

You can now add twitter accounts to artist profiles. (through Edit Artist)

Their latest 5 tweets will show up on the right sidebar. Example:
http://vgmdb.net/artist/927

I'm still not sure what possessed me to code this feature. Anyway, enjoy your stalking =)

Hahaha, nicely implemented. I wonder how many artists actually have Twitter accounts.

This is the first use of anything related to Twitter that I thought was cool.

By the way, how many artists have twitter accounts (that we know of)?

Cool. I just did many of these myself, so they're all added now. Also, Mark Griskey now has an artist page.

I just remembered that Larry has this thing on VG Frequency, which has quite a few twitter accounts for game musicians.

I'll update it some more later; haven't had time to update it in a bit since I've been too busy.

If a profile fails to load the latest tweets for some reason, like Twitter's down for maintenance or just randomly inaccessible again, the Twitter box is just blank:



Would it be possible to show an error message? Something like "couldn't load tweets" or "sorry bro, Twitter's just being Twitter again."

Maybe you folks saw this already, but just in case you didn't, Hitoshi Sakimoto made a Basiscape list at twitter, does vgmdb have all these fine folk?
