Mozilla’s Army of Awesome

Mozilla's Army of Awesome

In a plausible effort to strengthen Firefox community support, Mozilla has launched a new web site, called “Army of Awesome”.

Now, before you start packing your bags, here’s how it works:
- Mozilla tracks and displays all #Firefox mentions at Twitter
- In case of a browser issue, recruits may use their Twitter account and help those people out

Fair enough. However, while it sounds good on paper, there is one problem: it displays all the mentions, not highlighting tweets that may require your attention. To put it another way: a mess.

So, if you have a few minutes to spare, head over to Army of Awesome page and see it for yourself.
