Integration of this blog with twitter.com

I have been using twitter.com to a greater degree over the last few months and thought that it would make sense to better integrate my blog with this site.

Accordingly recent posts, including this one, now have a link at the bottom (between the main text and the bookmarks) enabling readers to directly “tweet” the piece. This appears next to the blue twitter.com bird as follows:

tweet thisTweet this article on twitter.com

If you click on this link, you will be taken to your twitter.com page with a new tweet already filled out for you with a shortened link to my article. Of course you can edit this before you post it if you like.

If you are one of the 0.5% of people who are not already on twitter.com, then you will be asked whether you would like to sign up before you can post the article.

I have got some great ideas from twitter.com and met some interesting people…

I have got some great ideas from twitter.com and met some interesting people. Hopefully this small improvement will help readers to also have similarly positive experiences.

At present only articles dating back to mid-March 2009 have the new twitter.com link. I am working on implementing this facility throughout the rest of the blog and more and more articles will become tweetable over time.
