Tweeting New Wizzes

I love how the system automatically tweets new wizzes. I'm wondering if there would be any way to set that up so that our twitter handle is included in a tweet of our own page?

I know that I can tweet my own wizz. I do that. I would just love to be mentioned by name in the tweet from wizzley.

I would simply disable the automatic tweeting feature and tweet yourself. Then you can edit the tweet before sending it out.

I would have to ask Simon and Hans about your request, but our to-do list is already pretty long...lol

Will get back with you on this, Jimmie.

Sure, that should be no problem - It's only a matter of how many words are alloweed for the Tweet. Basically, you mean adding the tag #Jimmie to the Tweet (if Jimmie is also your Twitter ID)? The problem is: How do we know your Twitter handle?

Did I understand it correctly?

Actually, we also thought about removing the automatic system and promote TwitterFeed instead, which has some important advantages:

1) Direct links to your Twitter account, not in spite of indirect links via TwitterCounter.

2) Automatic posts to Facebook are also possible.

I think what Jimmie means is that the tweet would include "by @jimmie" for example.

We'd have to enter our twitter handle in the backend and the Wizzley brain would then substitute/insert it in the feed which gets sent to twitter.

It's a cool idea, but if this would be a little difficult to implement right away we should keep it on our wizzley-do list.

how do you disable the automatic tweeting feature?

can you select it to only tweet some pages and not others?

1. Simply don't fill out the "Twitter Mail" field in your settings (leave it blank)

2. No.
