Facebook And Twitter On Verizon FiOS

My building here  in Manhattan just recently got FiOS TV and I signed up right away.  Overall I’ve been happy, particularly with the dedicated 20 MB/s for the internet.  This makes a marked difference when I stream Netflix to my Xbox 360.  Last week I was looking at my new messages on the cable box and noticed that Verizon just added Facebook and Twitter integration.  It’s still in its infancy but it seems promising. Facebook will only let you save one account at a time which can be a pain as it’s hard to input account info with the remote control.  Twitter does not allow for personal accounts but you can view the public timeline next to whatever you’re watching on TV.
