Integrating Tweets Into WordPress Blog Comments - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher ... - 2 views
Next week, I’ll discuss how to publish tweets in an actual blog post, but today I want to discuss how to integrate related tweets into your blog’s comments.
One of my favorites is the arcanely named BTCNew—short for Backtype Connect New—which automatically imports what people say about one of your posts on social media networks into the comments section of that post. BTCNew works with Twitter, Digg, FriendFeed, other people’s blogs, and more by automagically pulling in content that includes a link to your work. The result is that as long as people are saying things about your post and including the link, you’ll be able to preserve the conversation.
Setting up BTCNew takes about 60 seconds, and it’s a great way to corral some of the conversation that your work provokes.
