Twitter poll: The results

On Friday I asked, both here and on Twitter, whether I should auto-publish my blog entries to my Twitter feed. The results, where “no” includes people who say “start a new Twitter account for that”:

(Midas Oracle got counted twice, once as a yes and once as a no; dctag, on the other hand, seemed so diffident I didn’t count him at all.)

Maybe the thing to do is to start off manually, picking and choosing the blog entries to link to and maybe linking to more than one at a time. But to do that easily I’d want a Firefox plugin where I can right-click on a hyperlink, select “shorten”, and have a bit.ly address or somesuch automatically copied into my clipboard. Otherwise tweeting more than one URL at a time is a bit of a pain.
