Testing out two new tools

Twitter Tools and Lifestream

Twitter Tools will hopefully post a weekly digest of my tweets.

Lifestream does tweets and any RSS feed, but it looks like it can only do daily digests, not weekly. I am interested in it, though, because I use Google Reader quite a bit and Lifestream can grab my shared items (the same stuff on my right sidebar). I want to move away from using the sidebar for the display of these shared items because I have a hunch that most of my site visitors actually just read my feed.

Anyway, both plugins are activated right now. I’ll give it a couple of days and decide which to ditch…

  1. Cool! I have thought about playing with Twitter Tools but haven’t gotten around to it. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. I have heard of Lifestream, but did not know that it would do a daily Twitter digest. Actually, I would prefer daily to weekly…so maybe I’ll give it a try. I’m guessing it’s easier to set up than Twitter Tools. Anyway, I’ll await your assessment of both tools before taking action. 🙂

  2. Gee, this auto-weekly digest from Twitter Tools isn’t doing what I’ve expected twice now… I’ll give it a few more hours in case it’s a time zone issue.
