    Hello everyone!

    I just “twittered” some posts regarding my…

    New micro-blog-setting: http://Wir-sprechen-Online.com feeds http://twitter.com – twitgit becomes the @backchannel.

    http://WordPress.com offers all features I’d like @twitter: tags, search, comments, trackbacks, and more…

    The Prologue-theme by http://Automattic.com redesigns WordPress for micro-blogging purposes: http://tinyurl.com/5d7rjy

    Have a look at: http://twitter.com/Eicker

    Still, there are 2 things I’m hardly missing in this setting:

    1. If you post via “Whatcha up to?” (not via the WP-Admin, where it works) there’s obviously no ping activated (internally, externally)? – This should be added to the Prologue-installation (or theme at all) at WordPress.com, shouldn’t it?

    2. I’m using http://twitterfeed.com to tweet to twitter. Why isn’t there a widget that allows you to:
    2.1 select a feed (it’s not always the main-feed) and
    2.2. enter twitter-login-information to ping twitter?
    This would be a faster and gentler way to post to twitter, wouldn’t it?

    These “extensions” would make http://WordPress.com with Prologue the ideal twitter-feeder. What do you think?

    Smile!

    O RLY? Sounds interesting. I didn’t realize it had quite that much functionality.

    There’s one more thing:

    3. Why isn’t there a relative big characters-counter for the “Whatcha up to?”-textarea next to the “Post”-Button?

    And one more more thing:

    4. It might be helpful to have an (optional) Title-input-field above the textarea to define the links URI.
