Twitter; the social networking phenomenon which just keeps growing and growing has just grown a little more... Pixy is now using Twitter to give up-to-the-minute news. So if you're interested please follow us.
Many PixyBlogger's are already using Twitter and have integrated it into their blogs. There are many different ways on doing this, but by far the easiest is to use the Twitter Badge. Just like the PixyBlog Badge, it's a simple step-by-step process to cut-and-paste the code into your template. We have just set-up a twitter page on our News Blog which displays the latest updates. We used the simple HTML Widget which produced the following code snippet:
Very easy... But be warned, Twitter is addictive!
Those of you who follow PixyBlog closely will know who Sven, of from10to300mm fame, is. He's not only an awesome photographer (checkout his photoblog), but also a prolific poster in our discussion forum and one of the most active members of our community... especially when it comes to customizing his photoblog. It seems whatever we develop here at PixyBlog, Sven will find a use for it.
Most recently Sven is beta-testing a text blog version of our photoblog system which is now integrated into his site. This is a feature that we've been working on for a while now, and which this very news blog is powered by. This came about after a post in our discussion forum, so lookout for some more information about this in the coming months.
If you wonder-over to Sven's blog you will also note that his sidebar contains the most recent images from his photoblog. This is made possible by our PixyBlog Badge feature which allows any PixyBlogger to easily insert the most recent photos from their photoblog into another website.
You may also note the inclusion of his Twitter log and other related information, this is made possible by FriendFeed which, like the PixyBlog Badge, allows you to insert information from your other web services into a website.
So given the amount of work and effort Sven has put-in to the PixyBlog community, last week we approached him to ask if he would be interested in being even more involved than he already is. To start with, Sven is now the first moderator on our discussion forum and beta-tester for new developments at PixyBlog
So a very big thank you and kudos to Mr Sven Seebeck!
Thanks from the PixyBlog team
