Yeah, it’s probably been reviewed a lot, but hey, it’s new to me :)
I discovered Twitter about 2 months ago, and at first, I was a little skeptical. “Who would care about what I’m doing?” I remember saying to myself, then leaving the site immediately. Then I saw a few more blog posts about it. “How to Use Twitter For _______”. “Top Ten Uses for Twtiter”. On and on. So I decided to give it a second chance. A few of my favorite podcast novelists were on there (Scott Sigler, JC Hutchins, and a recent addition, Tee Morris). So I click the “follow” button on, start watching the tweets, and two months later I’m hooked. It’s just too much fun to microblog during your day about random observations, stuff going on, sites you like, etc. Good times all around.
And now I find a blog tool that integrates all your stuff INTO TWITTER. After wiping off the drool, I download, install, and here I am, writing a little review of it.
Installation was a breeze, as most WordPress plugins are. I did notice a few snags, mostly in the “test login”, but this is probably more due to twitter than the plugin… You see, twitter has this bad habit of crashing. Daily. Sometimes even hourly. But no worries, the down time will actually give you time to get stuff done during your day. Like going to work, watering your plants, playing with your kids, talking to your wife. You know, stuff regular people do who aren’t addicted to twitter (just trust me, it’s fun). And now, this will be my first post using Twitter Tools. If it doesn’t work, i’ll come back to say that I hate it, but if it does (and I’ve seen it used before, so I’m pretty confident) lets just say it’s another hook that twitter has put into me.
Oh, and if you’re not on Twitter, go now. Then follow me by clicking here.
