Beyond TweetBacks: Introducing TweetSuite

TweetBacks are great, but they’re just a single feature, the integration of Twitter and blogging can and should go much deeper than that.

And if you liked TweetBacks or TweetSuite, please vote for me in the Open Web Awards.

So today I’m releasing the first version of TweetSuite, a Twitter-WordPress integration plugin that includes the following features:

  • Server-side (no-JS or remote calls) TweetBacks
  • ReTweet-This buttons for each TweetBack
  • A digg-like Tweet-This Button
  • Automatic Tweeting of new posts
  • A Most-Tweeted Widget
  • A Recently-Tweeted Widget
  • A My-Last-Tweets Widget
  • A My-Favorited-Tweets Widget

You can see a lot of the functionality contained in the plguin, just by looking around my blog. Remeber again, this is beta stuff, and upgrades will be made available through the automatic upgrade feature.

If you want to use the automatic Tweeting of new posts, you’ll need to enter your Twitter username and password on TweetSuite’s settings page, and if you’re currently using any TweetBack plugin, you’ll need to deactivate it. To use the widgets, go to Presentation>Widgets.

This plugin does not contact my server, or use JS, and it will not fill your comments with spam like some users have reported with the TweetBacks plugin.

The graphics, including the Tweet-This and ReTweet-This buttons were designed by the freakin’ awesome Jeff at GoMedia.
