Make Your Weblog Work On/With Twitter

Posted on 1.20.2009

Now that Twitter has surpassed Digg in traffic (depending on whom you speak with), perhaps it's time to start paying more attention to the burgeoning social network.

Here are a few tools to help you make Twitter a viable resource in your online marketing arsenal:

Tweet This - Tweet This is simply a link integrated into your blog posts that make it easy for users to click on and post your post to Twitter.  Think of it like a social bookmark icon, only for updating Twitter instead.

TwitterFeed - TwitterFeed can take your blogs feed and automatically post an update to your Twitter account when you make a new blog post.  This is handy when keeping your Twitter followers up-to-date on your blog.

TweetBacks - TweetBacks integrate Twitter updates about a certain blog post much like trackbacks or pingbacks.  This allows a blog author to easily see if other Twitter users are talking about their posts.

Tweet Digest - This plugin will pull a daily digest of your Twitter updates and post them to your blog as a blog post.  That way, if some of your blog readers aren’t on Twitter, they can still see your status updates.  You can also setup the plugin to make a post each time you make an update to Twitter.  This may be a few too many blog updates though, if you Twitter often.
