Flock Together does more Twittery-stuff

Nothing too clever going on (apart from some Ajax-y and Javascript-y stuff on the input pages). Users now have the option to record their Twitter ID on Flock Together when they register or if they visit the Flock Together Twitter page.

Once this done, Flock Together does everything else automatically.

You need to be logged to get the full benefit.

For those interested in such matters, it uses the prototype Ajax library to update the page without reloading.

All comments welcome.
