Comments on: Twitter poll: The results http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/05/25/twitter-poll-the-results/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Dave http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/05/25/twitter-poll-the-results/comment-page-1/#comment-1960 Tue, 26 May 2009 13:17:23 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/05/25/twitter-poll-the-results/#comment-1960 I previously voted for you integrating these blog posts into your existing Twitter feed.

If there is so much hostility to that, isn’t the simple solution simply to set up a separate Twitter feed for this blog?

Personally, I would have integrated the two feeds (the blog’s post and your normal twittering) into one feed without consulting anyone, but now that you have let that genie out of the bottle and people seem afraid at having to see your blog posts Twittered, why not just create a separate Twitter feed for them, make everyone more or less happy, and move on?

Plugs in to Firefox; when you want to post, you click the little fire symbol, a tiny bar pops up at the bottom, you type in your twitter, click Include URL and Shorten, and there you go. Instant, easy twitter + link posting from within Firefox. And free.

This gives people the option of receiving the updates *if they want*, and doesn’t pollute the rest of our twitter feeds.

Would love to see your tweets more often. Enjoying your blog!

If you tweeted your blog posts manually, would you write original twitter ledes? That would be preferable but would probably mean more work for you…
