Embedding Tweets made easy on WordPress.com

In WordPress.com,WordPress.org on November 5, 2010 by Arno Tagged: , , ,

This is a great new feature on WordPress.com: embedding Tweets on your blog. Easy.

Just grab the url from an individual Tweet and paste it on a line by itself ad the result looks like this:

The cool thing about this new feature is that it gives you the full content of the original Tweet, with a username linking to the profile pages, hashtags linking to search pages and additional info like the timestamp, the Twitter cliënt used. You can also immediately retweet the embedded Tweet.

If you are on a self-hosted WordPress.org, you can use the Twitter Blackbird Pie plugin, which was modified for this new feature on WordPress.com.

Now finally on Posterous: saving your work as drafts

In Posterous on October 27, 2010 by Arno Tagged: ,

It was likely to be the biggest annoyance for users of Posterous; not being able to save your work as a draft. No longer though, because Posterous finally added this option to its web editor:

“Posting isn’t always spontaneous and wireless connections can be wonky. Today, we’re releasing drafts so you can save your work for later and prevent lost posts.

[..]

After saving a draft and hitting the Cancel button – your browser’s back button will work just fine too – your draft will appear in your list of posts appended with a ‘- draft’ label.”

This is good, because it means you no longer have to use this rather tiresome workaround any longer. 🙂
