Sounds good, RE... and you're probably right, for SEO purposes, Doomstead666 probably works better than DoomstdDinr.  If you notice, however, I am including #DoomsteadDiner in all the tweets, which is twitter's way of indexing, so that should be a plus for SEO.

Oh, and Surly, you can not have multiple names pointing to the same account, but you can change your username. It just really needs to be settled before we start advertising it.

Okay, ideally I'm aiming right now to tweet every 4-6 hours... my goal is to be as steady as possible... of course Real Life will undoubtedly get in the way...

Tweet #3 for the queue:

The 13 best movies ever: discuss your picks at the #DoomsteadDiner http://bit.ly/14fATbg  COLLAPSE: COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU

JD, I just signed up for Twitter so am a total noob.

Are these and the ones posted below in the queue?

Is there a way to do what Gm suggested, which is to link the Diner FB and twitter so both appear in each other's feeds?

What is optimum time or interval between posts? I suspect if you overdo it, people would unfollow you.

Any other advice/etiquette?

This thread is the only queue.  Once I post them to twitter they are live for everyone to see.  So far I've posted the first two.

Yes.

How? Beats me.

There's a reason for that, though. The ideal tweet definitely is not the same as the ideal Facebook post.  The quality is far better if humans are involved.

My suggestion, if possible, is to have both automatically show up on the Diner page.  I know there are widgets that can do that, I'm not sure how well they play with the rest of the Diner code.

There really is no such thing as an optimum interval between posts.  Or rather, the optimum varies for each individual reader.  Some people would unfollow if you post too much, some would never follow to begin with if you post too little.  That's why the ideal is to be consistent.  I'm figuring on tweeting every blog post and podcast plus the major topics of discussion, so I figure that's 4-6 tweets per day, which translates into 6-4 hours between tweets.

Twitiquette: you refer to other tweeters using the @ sign; I'm @jdwheeler42.  Other keywords you use the # sign, like #DoomsteadDiner.
Another thing that is expected is that when someone follows you, you will follow them back.  That's how we got our first follower.  It frequently doesn't work for popular Tweeters, but for normal people, that's the expectation.

Right now, my policy is to follow: 1. people who do podcasts on the diner 2. diners who tweet 3. tweeters who mention the Doomstead Diner frequently 4. other tweeters who tweet on collapse related subjects, at a slow rate

I'm trying to figure out what Links to Diner Tweets I should put on the Blog Menu and up on the Forum Header?  Should I put Follow us on Twitter @Doomstead666 or Follow us on Twitter #DoomsteadDiner?  Is there a URL I should drop under that?

4 Tweets a day doesn't seem unreasonable.  In one day I have a dozen from fucking Tyler Durden on Zero Hedge already!  They Tweet over there like a fucking Canary on Steroids.  LOL.

I have a good Tweet for you to drop on:

Tea Bagtroll Socrates Hosed by Surly plus Link to Surly's latest WWII History Lesson.  :icon_mrgreen:

Jeezus Fucking Christ.

I haven't even made Twitshit ONE here on my account, and I got Followers Euro-Banks and NAS Trading!!!

This likely is because of the choices I made to Follow when signing up, which were of course mostly Economic oriented Twitshitters.

I can see where this is going to clog up my email account in a big way.

Yeesh.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier... looks like you figured it out correctly... you follow @doomstead666, which you can get to at https://twitter.com/Doomstead666; you search for #DoomsteadDiner, which is a tag anyone can use to talk about the Diner. Twitter automatically pulls together all the tweets with that tag in it.

As to your suggested tweet, that's precisely the thread I was referring to in #5: Did the US need to nuke Japan? Debate continues 68 years later in the #DoomsteadDiner http://bit.ly/138EgGW THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE

Yours is definitely more colorful.  I wonder if we shouldn't do both and see if one gets a better response (although my expectation at this point is 0-0 lol).  Is there a particular post you would want the link to go to?  I'm guessing so.

Ack!  Thank you!  That's why I post them here first.  Fixed it above.

#7: Tea Bagtroll Socrates hosed by @Surly01 in the #DoomsteadDiner http://bit.ly/16CQW5X THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

By the way, Bit.ly keeps track of the number of times a link is clicked on.  So far we have 2 for Toby Hemenway, 1 for Ugo Bardi, and none for the others.

I made the Diner Tweets thread a Sticky so it is always at the top of the Kitchen Sink board.

There is (of course) a Twitter Widget for WP.  I asked Haniel to install it so the Diner Tweets will appear on the Blog.  :icon_sunny:
