Customize Publicized WordPress Tweet Messages

October 17, 2009

I have enabled all of my WordPress blogs to post directly from my dashboard directly to my Twitter account.

Each WordPress blog posted to Twitter begins with “posted to WP.com”.

Today I discovered a link within my WordPress publish box for editing publicized Twitter posts.

I am not sure whether the “posted to WP.com” Tweet introduction can be edited out or not but being able to add additional comments to Tweets should help make the theme and content of a each Tweeted WordPress blog post more clear to its audience.

WordPress Post To Twitter But No Twitter Tweets To WordPress

October 10, 2009

Several months ago I asked WordPress.com when I would be able to Tweet directly from my WordPress.com blogs.

WordPress has answered my question with their recent Publicize feature which Tweets posts like this one directly to a Twitter account.

WordPress users are rapidly adopting the new service as evidenced by the number of Tweets containing the WordPress Tweet signature – “Posted to WP.com.”

Any Tweet that begins with “Posted to WP.com was posted by a WordPress.com blogger.

At the same time I asked WordPress about being able to directly Tweet my blog posts, I also asked about how I could post to my WordPress account directly from my Twitter account.

I came up with some work arounds to get it done using the Bit.ly url shortener service, but the process required more energy than I cared to expend.

So Twitter and WordPress, when will I be able to send my Tweets to my WordPress blog to publish and “publicize” them via WordPress just like I can now publish and then “publicize” my WordPress blog posts to Twitter?
