Xbox 360 and Twitter

Okay, I have another gripe with Xbox 360.  We get all these cool achievements for doing various things in games and our 360s can't even automatically update our Twitter profile to let people know about them?  I'm not asking for a huge post on Twitter....but a little something like "Nathias has earned the such and such achivement in this game."  Is it really that hard?  My toilet can update my Twitter account (okay...not really) and the 360 can't handle a simple thing as dumping an update into Twitter?

Seriously, the only reason for having Twitter on the 360 is so we can read and make manual posts?  C'mon...

I guess the same can be said for Facebook integration as well...but the 360 not "tweeting" bothers me somewhat more.

Xbox 360 and Last.fm

We now take a break from our unending coverage of the Great PS3 Fatty Outage of 2010 to talk about something else.

I just started using Pandora music service a couple months ago.  For those who don't know what it is, you basically create an account...add songs, music genres, artists, etc that you enjoy and it will create a random music playlist of music it thinks you will enjoy.  It's actually really cool.  The service isn't on 360.  I guess Xbox 360 has Last.fm, which from what I understand since I don't use it, is similar.

Here is my beef....why can't we stream Last.fm music while we are playing games?  I'm currently playing a game on 360 that has absolutely terrible music that makes me want to take a hammer to my head.  I don't feel like dumping my MP3s to my 360 or setting up the media connector on my home PC, just so I can waste electric while leaving my PC running.  It would be nice if Microsoft and Xbox could do something to remedy this.
