Yesterday in my “I joined Twitter” announcement, I asked
Right now I have Twitter Tools set this blog set to ping Twitter when I put up a post. I also have it set to pull all my tweets into a blogpost which seems to be a self-perpetuating circle of insanity. (I post to the blog which Tweets “new blogpost”. Tools pulls my tweets into a blogpost. Which then triggers a “new blogpost” tweet. This is the song that doesn’t eeeeeend, it just goes on and on my frieeeend.) Actually just typing that out sounds rather obnoxious but is that how you play the game or whut?
But Alex King, the developer of my deliciously shiny new plugin, anticipated and answered said question in the FAQ that’s posted on the settings/twitter tools page (also known as THE README), I just didn’t scroll down far enough to read it.
What happens if I have both my tweets posting to my blog as posts and my posts sent to Twitter? Will it cause the world to end in a spinning fireball of death?
Actually, Twitter Tools has taken this into account and you can safely enable both creating posts from your tweets and tweets from your posts without duplicating them in either place.
So there ya have it. And I have it. We all have it.
