Twitter enhancement

Posted by Martin on October 9, 2009

Some of you will recall the brief BfK experiment with Twitter at Salute earlier in the year. Well, that didn’t turn out quite as I’d hoped – mainly because I spent more time enjoying myself than tweeting.

Now, with a recent addition to WordPress functionality, I can link my blog to my Twitter account and make it automatically tweet every time I add a new post on the blog.

Why should you care? Well, if you’re a Twitter user, you can now follow BfK on Twitter and know within minutes when I add a new posting here. Give it a go and let me know how you get on.

Tweeting from Salute

Posted by Martin on March 26, 2009

At the start of the year I mentioned that I might try out some new interactive things on BfK. One of the ideas I had was to include postings (or “tweets”, as they’re known) from the BfK Twitter account. Now, it’s not something I intend to do regularly because, frankly, there would be long periods where I had nothing to say on Twitter that’s hobby related. However, on a day like Saturday when I’ll be at Salute, it’ll be good fun to tweet a lot and have it show up here.

For that idea to work, a couple of technological things had to fall into place. And I’m delighted to say that, in the nick of time, they have. So now I should be able to text tweets from my mobile phone to to the Bfk Twitter account and they’ll show up in the Twitter Updates panel in the left hand column here on BfK central.

If you want to follow the Bfk Twitter account using your own favourite Twitter client, then all you need to know is that the username is befreiungskrieg.
