Some time back THE BS BLOG had a Twitter account, and we would send a tweet after we published a new post. As time passed however, it proved to be quite a hassle; going to the Twitter website, logging in, and manually sending out a message every time. As a result, we eventually we opted out of the great Twitter experiment.
Since that time, the ever-creative folks at WordPress (who host this and countless other blogs) have developed a system by which we can have our blog automatically linked to our Twitter account. All we do is publish a new post, and WordPress (and Twitter) do the rest. People who follow the BS BLOG will automatically be notified of our new posts. In fact, if those who follow us have selected the option in their Twitter account, followers can actually receive a text message on their cell phone, telling them a new post has been published on our blog.
Granted, it’s a little presumptuous to think our readers are really that interested in our drivel, rants and occasional political arguments. Well, ok so it’s a lot presumptuous. Be that as it may, since it requires no extra effort on our part, we’ve fired up the old Twitter account again.
Our name on Twitter is THE_BS_BLOG, and you can sign up to follow us by clicking the Twitter link on the right side of this page. Feel free to join in!
