Micro-Blogging from WordPress

Manton Reece did a kickstarter for a software project on and a book about independent micro-blogging. I really like the idea since it means I can have a full feed of my (micro-)blogging on my blog and certain posts get cross-posted to Twitter. I do this via a plug-in because IFTTT just didn’t work for me. But I like this even better in the end. 

The process is a bit cumbersome because I have to add a category for the micro-posts and in the WP-app this means going into two different screens. I will see if I will continue using that way. But from my understanding everything should become far more easier when micro.blog gets released 😀

Update: I am now using the iOS-apps Drafts and Workflow to post to Twitter and WordPress. It is less error prone than the plug-in way.

I just tried to microblog from WordPress via IFTTT. It would have been nice to use that until micro.blog arrives but it doesn’t work. When I create a Feed Recipe that contains only the entry-content and the item has no title, only a link gets posted to twitter. Meh
