Automatically Tweet Your Latest Blog Post

Did you know that it is possible to link your WordPress blog and Twitter account together so that every time you publish a new blog post it automatically updates your Twitter status with a link to that post? Once you have your feed setup in Google Feedburner, you can activate the “Socialize” service and format your tweets to look however you want, including hashtags or additional text before or after your post title. Your links will automatically be shortened by Google using the domain. Once this service is activated, then every time you publish a new blog post, your Twitter status will automatically be updated, and your followers will immediately know that you’ve published something new on your blog!

You need to upgrade your Flash Player to version 8 or newer.
