I just added a feature on Twitter, I call it "The Post of the Day" and for you users, I hope it is a handy way to keep up with an eclectic sampling of what is happening in the forum.
I'm using a free service associate with Twitter called www.tinyurl.com
which takes long winded links to posts and shortens it trendously, allowing you to add a message and the link all within 140 characters.
I think The Post of The Day will be a handy and entertaining feature on the Twitter Channel. Suggested links will be posted too if members submit them to me via PMs or directly on Twitter.
To show the Tinyurl's power, here is the link to our Forum Bi-Laws:http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,19652.0.html
and here it is with Tinyurl:http://tinyurl.com/2atx4uz
- as you can see it's nearly as short as typing:http://www.beemaster.com
it saves GREATLY on space and as you know SOME sites have links that are seemingly miles long - this service makes it possible to tweet those ridiculously long links to anyone.
I'm up to 14 posts on Twitter now and although growth of the followers is slow, I expect that it will do well in time. Even if not, to those using it, I believe it is a nice feature to have.
