Twitter & kriskoeller.com

Geekdom, kriskoeller.com

I had a few questions about the use of Twitter on this website. I have two Twitter accounts; @kriskoeller is my personal account which on occasion has links to new posts but is mostly the nonsense you might come to expect from someone's personal twitter account. My other account is @kpkdotcom which is solely used by the website. This account tweets four things:

1. The title and link to new posts
2. Blog comments with a link to the post and a Twitter attribution to the commenter (if they included their Twitter account)
3. Every hour it auto-tweets a link to one of the 24 most-recent kriskoeller.com posts; this list is updated every day at midnight.
4. Every hour it auto-tweets a link to one of the 24 most-recent entries left by a commenter, with a Twitter attribution. This is list is updated nightly.

All of this is fully automated, but I do get the replies and RTs so thanks for the those. I wrote this content management system and commenting system myself, and while its nice to have total control over what it does, it was a lot of work. If it ever doesn't behave as expected, please let me know.

If you want to test it out, leave a comment below and include your URL and you'll see tweets later on with a link to your most recent posts. Just trying to spread the love...
