You probably know about the Rules module and about its power to define conditionally executed actions based on occurring events in Drupal. But what if you could react on external events also? For example if someone is retweeting one of your tweets or you get a comment on your Facebook page? And how about having actions available for writing facebook posts, retweeting, posting flickr images and more? Wouldn't it be awesome? Yes it is!
