rjayb89 posted a suggestion on the Bug Reporting forum about a having twitter account that would tweet when a live show is about to start. I found this to be a good idea, so I built a twitter bot that will tweet when a live is going to start soon and when it goes live.
Here it is: http://twitter.com/#!/GB_Live_Shows
It basically checks every 10 minutes to see if there is a countdown timer at the top of a page on GIant Bomb. If there is, it'll tweet that a live show is starting soon. Once the count down timer switches to saying it's live, it'll tweet again saying that the show is now live while also providing a link to the chat.
I'll eventually get the bot to tweet all the shows that happen on the rest of the whiskey sites.
