bhavyakhanna Run for Unity from Vijay Chowk to India Gate: Because no one from BJP physically capable of running any longer than that

@isnav Yeah, just got done. You kept me engaged throughout the bus ride. Thank you! :)

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Neb Sara, New Delhi

@isnav But that would mean the creator has to create duplicates — which is a bad thing in the first place.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Qutab Enclave, New Delhi

@isnav Technically that’s how it’ll work. But for a user it’s as complex as maintaining tight control over who gets to see a Facebook post.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Munirka, New Delhi

@isnav Hope that (sort of) makes sense.

Guess 140 char limit makes you go in circles a few times. :)

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Ramakrishna Puram, New Delhi

@isnav Not straightforward, but you’ll need an authenticated feed (or multiple URLs) and have to add access settings for each event created.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Subroto Park, New Delhi

@isnav Oh, then you can make a personal calendar feed and put all events that you want “publicly known” on that. Others can subscribe to it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi

@isnav Pretty much. If you make a custom solution (or maybe one already exists) you could lift (or impose) constraints of a shared calendar.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to isnav from Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi

@isnav Well, theoretically, it can be a shared event repository with multiple people managing it.

@vikramadhiman These days there are plenty of UberX cars around. Or do you stick to just Uber Black? @konarkmodi

@isnav You can create a feed that people can subscribe to.
