In the beginning, we set up a WordPress website to act as our public-facing site for Ten-321 Enterprises. As somewhat of an experiment, we set it up as a multisite installation, even though the main Ten-321 website was initially the only site in the network.

As WordPress projects came along, though, we would add a new site to the network and do all of our development (plugins, custom themes, etc.) in that new site on the Ten-321 network.

That WordPress plug-in is called Twitoaster, and what it does is pretty simple. First of all, it allows you to automatically send a tweet whenever you publish a new WordPress post or page. That’s cool enough on its own, but the really cool thing Twitoaster does is to keep track of when and where your posts are mentioned and/or retweeted on Twitter. Then, it adds those tweets as new comments on the blog post. Read the rest of this entry »
