Thank you for taking the time to looks at my project. What I am looking for is a twitter-like site specifically for professional poker players to update their friends, family, and fans of their progress in live poker tournaments. Currently, many of these poker players are using twitter to communicate this. I think it would be neat to take the poker players off of twitter and create a social networking type site for poker players only.
Here is an example of how one professional poker player updates his followers of his poker game on twitter: [url removed, login to view]
I think it would be great if once the player has posted a message on their page, one of their followers could respond to it or comment on the players post (much like a blog comment). I don't want the site to be just like twitter, rather I just want it to have a twitter feel to it.
I need someone experienced in coding something like this as well as structuring it into a full operating website that is easy to control and maintain. I would also like the ability to post to the site from a mobile phone, as most people would likely do this while sitting at a poker game with their mobile phone in hand.
I would like to talk with anybody further who might be interested in taking on this project!
