Two From Twitter

Twitter continues to take on the power of Facebook with two further enhancements. There is now a new version of Twitter search which delivers photographic images and video in the results page.

If you have the latest version of Firefox you can type a #hashtag or @username  into the browser address bar immediately open a search results page (try #travel) or someone’s profile page (like @digiconsultant).

The second refinement is the Follow Button; a simple piece of code to drop into your web site or blog at any location you wish.  To configure a follow button for your site go here and follow the easy directions.

As a matter of good social media practice I would recommend that you add this button to every article you publish.

Facebook’s social plugins should also be included where appropriate.
