Hello,
I was just looking at twitter when a thought came to my mind. Then i quickly ran twitter and checked if that was feature is already there. It isnt! So here's me sharing my thought:

Why dont we have a auto-post to twitter option both for the user & for the admin. Here the explanation: A user has a question about css, he posts the questions, but he might want to broadcast the same information via twitter. I do. So giving him an option to auto-post will surely bring in more people on the page.

For admins / site:
Every time a new post arrives on the forum, a tweet with the title is sent via the feed. It might be a good idea to even create a separate handler (if there r too many msgs). Personally, i use twitter a lot, and if i get a tweet from csscreator, i could access the forum and reply to it. (i am too lazy to open the site and check for recent posts!)

Also, i have added my twitter handler on my profile, but it really doesnt show-up anywhere. Unless someone is really keen on following me, then he can visit my profile and then see the handler. Probably, we can display it on the member-info in the replies?

Just my thoughts (i guess, i have far too much time in hand) Tongue

Regards,
Mihir.

I will think on these ideas.

I will think on these ideas.
It should be easy to show the twitter icon next to the author info beside the post, with a link to there twitter account.
Not to sure about the auto posting to twitter.

Thanks for the ideas.

@Tony - the "share with twitter" is nice Smile

Now - could we have the "share this comment on twitter" for each post?
