A lot of good tools.

It's unfortunate that Twitter is having so many problems lately though. Seems like it is frequently losing twits, is very slow and sometimes just shuts down. They seem to have figured out some of the problems, but not all.

Thanks for the Twitterdoodle mention. One small clarification - Twitterdoodle creates actual posts based on keyword searches. You can have the auto-created posts go to your front page as any normal blog post or go directly to one of your categories. Visit my blog www.lessnau.com to see the plugin in use.

Lately I've read some articles saying good things about the usefulness of Twitter.
But I'm a guy who likes to mind his own business and maybe this tool isn't for me.
I mean, if it got more visitors to my site, heck, I'm a twitter right away.
But if it doesn't....
Of course that for other users it will have its qualities, as for me I haven't decided yet.

Have a nice time,
