How to share good stuff from Twitter

I’m learning how to share my different planets with my friends. You see, in spite of the fact that lots of us on Twitter have created vibrant islands of intelligence and caring, there are many, many people who have not found anything of value in their visits into Twitterdom.

That’s okay. Really! We are all moving through these long arcs of change in different ways.

Still. I want to share some of the Twitter world with people who are not there with me. So today, I am experimenting with taking a “snippet” from Friendfeed (a site where my posts on Twitter also show up), and I’m going to paste it right into this blog. If this works, I will start using it to bring over certain bits of information to share with you. Here goes.

Ta da!

Okay, that didn’t work at all. Hold on. I’ll be back.

Now I am trying just taking a screenshot of how it looks on Friendfeed. I like it there because it has my logo for Bay Area Bloggers Society as the avatar (the little picture in the square).

Well, that’s interesting, but I think for now this is a failed experiment. I’m going to have to do a little more research. Don’t worry. I’ll get it figured out for you – and for me.

(Sounds of shoes walking away, “Hello? Anyone know how to get Twitter posts into a blog?”)

UPDATE: — I followed the suggestions on Social Media Examiner, a post by Mari Smith, to get my Twitter posts into my blog via FriendFeed. I like the fact that it only shows the posts which I “star” on Twitter, so I can select what I send out from the Twitter universe, and not overwhelm people with too many posts that may not be relevant to them. Do you like my box there in the right column?

    Here I am testing out the comments on the new blog. Every WordPress theme has its own take on the look and feel of the comments and how they are accessed. This is always another area to consider when choosing the WordPress theme, but it is often too obscure in the Preview to know if you’re going to like it.
