Sure, you can go to twitterfeed and you will give it the twitter
password for the @bsdevents account and the RSS feed location for our
events page.  (Sorry, there is no strong authentication framework for
twitter -- all these tools force you to share your twitter password
with them).  Then twitterfeed will automatically post a 140 character
summary of new entries in the RSS feed to the @bsdevents twitter
stream.  You can also still login and post other events to the
@bsdevents stream (say, reminders, follow up information, or
information for events for other bsd's besides freebsd).
