What is ChessTweets?

ChessTweets is the newest generation of correspondence chess. ChessTweets uses the Twitter API to send chess moves remotely to your opponent by using any of Twitter's versatile status update methods. With a Twitter account, play a quick game against a friend or start a correspondence game for free and without any registration required!

board game - ChessTweets
You need to be patient because it takes some times for the moves. Currently, moves in public games are tallied manually on a rough 24-hour basis. Once hit a critical mass, moves will be tallied by some automated time schedule, whether it be exactly once every 24 hours or after x valid move votes have been submitted.

Inactive private games are kept on ChessTweets for 10 days. If a game is inactive for longer than this period the game will be resolved in one of two ways:

  • If the game has progressed less than 5 full turns (10 valid moves by both White and Black), the game will be deleted with no stat collection or elo rating changes.
  • If the game has progressed more than 5 full turns (10 valid moves by both White and Black), the inactive player will be forced to resign, and the corresponding stat collection and elo rating changes will take place.

Happy Birthday to Igor Stravinsky

Igor Stravinsky ? When i saw this front page in google search, i also wonder who is Igor Stravinsky ? According to Wikipedia, Igor Stravinsky was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor, considered by many to be one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music.

He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works.

Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky was born in Oranienbaum, Tsarist Russia on 17 June, 1882. His father, Fyodor, was a famous opera singer in the St. Petersburg Imperial Opera. Determined that his children would have more secure professional lives, he insisted that young Igor prepare for a less chancy career, so Igor began his studies in law at university in 1901. In 1902 Stravinsky met Rimsky-Korsakov (one of Russian's leading nationalist composers), and on his father's death later that same year, he began his formal musical composition studies.
