Twittering Is Back

Postby Staff » Sat Oct 10, 2009 1:47 am

The FBTB Twitter simulcast is now back. If anyone who's following got a series of tweets from me all saying the same thing, I apologize for the spam. I tried installing the latest version of twitter tools but it wasn't sending the link back to the original post so I had to revert to an earlier version of the plugin.

We now return you to regularly scheduled programming.

If there are Facebook tools similar to the twitter tools, it would be nice to have them for those of us who use Facebook instead of twitter. Speaking of social media integration, it would be nice to have one of the generic widgets on stories to share via Facebook, twitter, digg, email...

i've actually been wanting to do this for awhile, so without further ado, the sharing buttons are now active on each post. I'll go back later and style them a little beter. Might have a click to show sharing buttons action in place of the buttons showing all the time, but for now this is good enough.

No, you're not the only one. I can't find it either. :S
I am the brain, that which keeps you sane
I think your thoughts, I feel your pain
I am able to control both body and soul
I am never asleep, and I make you whole.

Wow, thanks for adding it so quickly. I see it on the main page (green icon with "ShareThis" text) but I'm used to seeing on the individual story page on most sites. If it's on the main page, it probably should be on the individual pages as well, which is why people probably are having trouble finding it. :)

PS I'd still love to see FBTB in my Facebook feed if its not to hard. I'd probably still check FBTB before Facebook every day. :)

those were probably cached pages that you guys were looking at. i've dumped the cache so you should be able to see it on all individual article pages as well.

How do you post twitter messages from you cell phone? I added my number to my twitter account and I just don't know how to send messages from my phone. Do you have to use the internet on your phone or is it like sending a text message?
