    I do not recommend auto tweet for all your posts. You never know what you post on your blog. So manual tweeting is the best I believe.

    • Auto-tweeting your blog post is good. Manual tweeting is also good. But to achieve the best of result, use auto-tweeting

    Some times it so happens that we forget to tweet. At such times the auto tweet feature will be very useful.

    Also it is a must to tweet your post atleast once via tweetmeme.

    Hi Adesoji.

    I connected my Google Buzz feed this way. Now everything I post on Buzz is shared on Twitter – not the other way around, which some bloggers do but I find it annoying. Thanks for sharing, do you have anymore FeebBurner tips? Let me know where I can find them.

  • Adesoji Adegbulu says:

    I will let you know when i find more tips.

    Thanks

    This indeed is a great tip. However, I already use twitter plugin to automatically tweet my blog posts.

    Great idea — hand over more information to Google AND your twitter username and password.

    Thank you for the post, it really saved me a lot of trouble and space on my blog. I was searching for several plugins to autotweet but this solution is definitly the way to go 🙂

    I like plugins but I don’t wanna use it when there is another simple solution that saves some space 🙂
