Gunnar’s weekly Twitter-links

There are several reasons why it is a good idea to summarize the links that one has shared on Twitter in a blog post. First of all just sharing on another platform is a good idea. Not everyone is on Twitter, and this gives other a chance to discover what you are sharing. You may be sharing the some of the same  things on Facebook, but rarely all – and only your Facebook Friends will be able to see them anyway. On this  platform anyone can see them.

Secondly, the items are searchable on your Blogging platform. More than once have I looked for things that I have tweeted in the past, and had a hard time to find them. This is easily avoided now with a search.

This post is also searchable on Google now. This both gives content to my web-page and makes it easier to find on general Google searches for specific keywords.

The application I use is Twitter tools for WordPress. It automatically, makes a blog post of your tweets. Then I edited the tweets for about an hour into the categories below. Hope you find this useful.
