Related Tweets

tweetUsing your blog as the seed, find quality content from the Blog Traffic Exchange and tweet it automatically. Provide your followers with interesting and relevant content within the niche of your blog. Supplement your twitter account with quality content related to your blogging niche using the our powerful content search engine.

There are setting to control the frequency and regularity of the posts. Other than that simply run the plugin and tweets will begin. I am now running this plugin and pointing it at the Blog Traffic Exchange twitter feed.

How does it work? After setting your Twitter username, password, tweet frequency, and tweet regularity the plugin will run on a schedule. Each time the plugin executes it will select a public blog post from your blog at random. Then it will use the post as the search seed of the Blog Content Exchange repository. The content repository will return a tweet containing the most relevant website, famous quote, or other content in the repository.

Neat! Trying it out on my blog, will share what I think once I’ve seen it in action!

I like this plugin alot – the only problem is, it doesn’t have a way of preventing duplicates. Can you add that feature in? I’ve posted the same article 3 or 4 times in the last 3 days and had to go in and delete them.

@Robert

As of the writing on this comment no tweet will be posted twice by the plugin for your site. (Regardless of your twitter id)

Great idea.

I am testing this now, It looks promising! I would suggest a scheduling feature (e.g. tweets between 8 am & 6 pm, etc.) along with interval selections. Maybe simply a daily start and stop time. I prefer not tweeting all through the night…

Works great, thank you

I have a genealogy blog, and I have set up which categories to NOT include (they have nothing to do with genealogy and history) but the Related Tweets plugin posts things like “Yikes! I have a virus!” etc., which then is seen on Facebook too. I have to keep deleting the tweets and assuring my friends I’m not infected. I know there are tons of people who twitter about genealogy, history, etc., and yet my auto tweets don’t seem to reflect that interest. I may have to de-activate the plugin until it can be more finely tuned. I love the plugin though, don’t get me wrong.

@Carol

The next version which I hope to get out next week will allow you to
remove certain words…

I would encourage your to add you blog to the blog traffic exchange by
using the related websites plugin and getting an API key. Also if you
know of good genology bloggers with wordpress blogs encourage them to
join. The more good genology blogs in the exchange the more content
to tweet from on genology.

Do you happen to know the site and post being linked? if so email me so I can check the algorithm in this specific case.

Great Plugin!

I’m wondering if there’s some way you could put in a queue and approve feature of some sort so I don’t have to delete any spam tweets. (only had 1 so far, but even 1 can cause you to lose followers — not that I have many yet lol) Or some way to report them?

Thanks again! Great stuff!
