This Is Neat

Make your feelings known with plusplusbot. You can ++ (pronounced “plusplus”) or — (“minusminus”) anything. Think brownie points (but archived forever). Here’s how it works:

  1. Make sure you have a Twitter account
  2. Follow plusplusbot
  3. If you love something add ++ after it like this:

coffee++ because it keeps me alert

You’ll get a confirmation message with coffee’s current score, and plusplusbot.com will update itself. (To indicate your displeasure, use — after a target name.)
