Orchestrating Microservices using Twitter



A few days ago i had an idea where i could use a twitter feed of an account as a way of orchestrating different microservices.

Effectivly, getting different services listening to a twitter stream, and then acting when certain content is produced. At the same time, when a service is done processing something, the service can post on the twitter feed, allowing other services to act based on this, thus causing the entire service to be event driven.

More information can be found on my blog here

I haven’t created a proof of concept just yet, but i was wondering if anyone had any thoughts, oppinions, suggestions?
