It’s been a while since I’ve done any work on the-spot.net … in fact it’s been nearly 6 years to the date (3/31/2008) since I updated the MySpot page with some of the “new” features that page has. Now many of those features are broken because the technology or application or service they used has disappeared. Read More

What happened to the Dallas Stars Twitter? They removed me from their friend list, and changed everything!

If you’re asking yourself that question…it’s not what you think. Here’s what happened – it was all a mistake…

The Backstory…

TweetSuite WordPress Plugin + Ping.fm (Preview)

March 21, 2009 | | 2 Comments

A couple weeks ago, I found out that Twitter had a Search feature that showed real-time tweets for a keyword. I gave it a little thought, considered what it would take to actually write the software – and then wised up, and decided to see if someone already did the hard work.

Sure enough, Dan Zarrella over at danzarrella.com had. He wrote one for Tweetbacks, and then expanded on it with TweetSuite. So I gave them a shot.

I started with Tweetbacks on the FreeformFrog.com Blog and everything seemed to be working fine – until one day when the Tweetbacks stopped. It just stopped finding them – even though I knew they were getting tweeted – because I was using Ping.fm to syndicate my blog posts to the appropriate social networks.

I gave it a couple weeks, and then decided I was going to fix it. I was tired of not having my TweetBacks working – especially during my efforts pushing a Social Networking campaign at job.

So, I added @danzarrella, and asked…

@danzarrella do you have plans to integrate ping.fm posting in TweetSuite? If not, mind if I take a crack at it?
