If you have been on Twitter lately, you have probably all those Alpha Testing requests by folks who are hoping to get a chance to test out tweetboard. So what is tweetboard anyway? It’s an innovative application based on Twitter platform that lets you bring the power of Twitter to your WordPress blog. If you thought your users were engaged with your blog before, you are going to love how they interact with tweetboard.
Tweetboard grabs your latest Twitter updates and adds them to your website. Tweetboard sits on the top of your WordPress blog (as a slide-in) as it’s a script and not a plug-in. Your readers can then use the board to communicate with you and comment on your posts. The conversations are shown in a nested format, allowing you and your users to get more out of your discussions.
What I love about tweetboard is the fact that it can drive lots of traffic to your blog. Every time someone decides to get involved in a conversation on your tweetboard, a link to that conversation is posted on their Twitter account. Depending on the topics you discuss on your blog, you could get lots of free traffic from your readers and tweeps. Your conversations are posted on Twitter using posted.at and inreply.to domains, so your twitter friends know what they are reading.
Ultimately, tweetboard is an innovative Twitter service that lets you bring the power of this great community to your blog. Tweetboard is so easy to install, and it doesn’t add too much load to your blog. Best of all, it gets your users engaged and can bring you lots of traffic. It seems like a no-brainer to me.
