Everyone’s talking about New Twitter

posted Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

So what’s the big deal with New Twitter?
Why don’t I see New Twitter?

New Twitter comes with a new and improved interface. Some of you may still not see it as it is being rolled out to all accounts slowly. I have it on my Twitter account: Erum but I don’t see it on my 3DEcovers Twitter account, yet. So it is all a matter of luck.

So what changes does New Twitter bring?

My favorite feature so far. You know when you get a gazillion replies and it takes a while to figure out who is replying to what? Well that has just become simpler now. more…

Updated List of Important and Useful WordPress Plugins (WP 2.5.1)

posted Thursday, July 31st, 2008

It is time for an updated list of useful WordPress Plugins that work with the 2.5.1 version.

I’m not going over 2.6 as it is still in its early stages and not all plugin authors have successfully updated to this version. But I will get to this soon.

Some of these are going to overlap with my previous list as they have been upgraded to work with this version and some I have already discussed in detail in several other posts.

  1. Accordion Tabs
    This lets you add WordPress functions in a tabbed interface. Not only does this look pretty neat but it also saves space. A must have for any blog!

  2. Add This Social Bookmarking Widget OR Add To Any
    Both plugins offer your visitors the chance to bookmark your posts and pages. Instead of adding several icons under your post and making them look cluttered, the whole menu pops up AJAX style on mouseover.

  3. Adsense Deluxe
    This is a classic and should not need any introduction. It lets you add adsense or YPN ads to your posts at the click of a button. Manage the codes on the plugin settings page.

    An alternate which lets you add either adsense or YPN is the All in One Adsense and YPN. However, I haven’t tested this one yet.

Tweet, Tweet, Twitter

posted Monday, July 21st, 2008

I joined Twitter a while but never bothered much with it. That is until I found this very simple to use WordPress plugin.

This plugin not only displays my last X twitters but also lets me add Twitters from inside the WP admin. Now that is a God send for people like me — what a time saver!

This can be called as a function or added as a widget. And that is the way all plugins should work. Give both options! You never know what might be needed.

Now I can tweet to my heart’s content and it is quite a lot of fun to do so, too.

For those of you who are still as yet unaware of Twitter, it is reminiscent of its name. Think of it as constant status updates of your life. It is the answer to one simple question: What Are You Doing? You can twitter away, let your friends and family follow your escapades or make new friends and see what they are up to.
