If you use WordPress, you really need to pay attention to the plugin updates on your dashboard. I logged in today and found an amazing plugin that totally improves upon and replaces two plugins I currently use (Twitter Tools & Twitter Tools bit.ly). It’s called Twitter Blog; and it does it all.
Twitter Blog will not only tweet your blog post, but it will also check hourly for replies to that tweet and turn it into a comment on that blog post. It also uses the bit.ly API for URL shortening and adds link generated to your bit.ly account for tracking purposes.
This is in active development so there will be frequent updates. Sometimes multiple per day. If you find any bugs or have a suggestion: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Tweets about your blog post on posting
- Creates a bit.ly link when your blog post is tweeted and adds it to your bit.ly link history
- Checks for replies to the tweet hourly and converts them to comments
- Direct Message is sent to the user notifying them their tweet has been added to your blog post
- Comment will be moderated and administrator will be notified according to system settings.
- Customizable Tweet format
- Use the Twitter user’s image for the comment image
- Add Twitter hashtags to tweets for individual posts
Thank you WordPress Dashboard! I love you.
