Mark this day as another that will go down in History as an "AWESOME NEW FEATURE" added to the ActiveRain Network. We have added and are rolling out Twitter auto-feeds for your AR Blog posts. If you have a Twitter account already, you can set yours up now. If you don't, you'll need to go to Twitter.com and set one up. It will take less than a minute.
What is Twitter? It's micro-blogging. "Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. The sender can restrict delivery to those in his or her circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email or through an application such as Twitterrific or Facebook. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email."
Setting Up Twitter on ActiveRain:
The process for setting up your Twitter Account on ActiveRain will literally take you 10 seconds.
Click On "My Home" at top of this page
Click on the "My Settings" link on left side of page
Scroll down to "Twitter Setup" and enter your info
Put in your Twitter user name and password, Click Update
When you create a new post now (if enabled), Twitter will automatically place an announcement in your twitter feed and profile including the Title of the post as well as a link to your post. We are looking at adding an option on the "New Post" page that allows you to select which posts you want to tweet. Now go post in the rain, and let the outside world and your followers know.
