Okay I used the Twitter API to access the news feed with a custom php
class. I also have it cached in a file called 'micronews.cache.json'
(for 12 hours), so it's very speedy. At the bottom of the News Feed
section, I put links to follow the GTK+ project on Twitter and so people can follow on whichever account they have. The
reason I used the Twitter api was because 1) I'm more familiar with
it, and 2) I noticed all posts were being mirrored on
Twitter's account along with other post which were not.

However I noticed there is a ton of space on the home page now, so we
either have to limit the number of posts to view to about 3, or add
more content on the home page. Maybe screenshots? I'm not sure.
