FriendFeed Screencast: Importing your Twitter friends

It was just a couple of weeks ago where I walked you through adding your Twitter friends to FriendFeed using a third-party tool. Yesterday, FriendFeed added this capability directly to the tool: Find and subscribe to your Twitter friends on FriendFeed. The following screencast walks you through the process.

FriendFeed is a great way to organize your Twitter followers into groups. Its aggregation and filtering capabilities allow you to follow many more people without losing them in the noise. If you've been waiting to get started because of the difficulty of building your network on yet another service this tool will make the transition much easier for you. I hope you'll give it a try.

NOTE: This is my first screencast where I have rendered it in HD. If you watch it in HD on YouTube: Friend Feed Twitter Import (click on the HD in the bottom right corner of the video.) it really is quite nice. I'm thinking most people will watch it as an embed and not in HD, however. I'm considering abandoning HD rendors in the future. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this.
