It sends a tweet with the name of the blog for a start, but also an automatically shortened URL. The only problem with this is that the link sends people to the Twylah landing page rather than the blog. Not such a clever idea maybe, but well worth it to experiment I think. When landing on your personal Twylah page the viewer is greeted by other related Tweets, that in my case provides them with the opportunity of clicking on any number of my articles.
I’m thinking this is a better way of sharing than the blog straight off, as you can see how it would drive browsing and higher levels of engagement by encouraging people to click on related posts and my personal trending tweets of the moment. At least that’s what I am hoping. It not like I am making money from traffic, so for me it’s all about promotion.
I can’t get them to work properly on this blog, hosted as it is by WordPress, but there are also HTML ‘buttons’ and ‘widgets’ you can add directly to your site. The widget looks like a hyperlink on my page, it’s the one that says See @radiojaja’s trending tweets on the top right hand corner.
Anyway, it’s a brilliant idea, and I’ve already spent all of last night playing around with it. I’ll let you know how I get on as time passes, but I am really excited by the prospects so far.
