WordPress, where our website is hosted, offers a couple of Twitter-related features I made use of over the summer.
Genealogy tweets in our sidebar: The right sidebar at our website used to display messages from two or three blogs: Dick Eastman, Legacy Family Tree, etc. Those have been replaced by a single list showing tweets from a baker’s dozen of sites. Eastman and Legacy are still there but Ancestry, Fold3, GenealogyBank, DearMyrtle, and others are included too. This is a list I created at Twitter.
Our Twitter account: In order to create a list, I needed an account for the club. The account’s handle is @SunCityGenClub and its name is “SCOV Genealogy Club.” WordPress automatically uses our account to tweet the title of any message posted to our website. If you have a Twitter account and follow @SunCityGenClub you’ll see a message whenever anyone posts to our website, with a link back to the post.
