P0wning My Blog for Twitter....

....or any other social bookmarking tool, too!

Having just started to use Twitter in November, I really haven't gotten the full gist of the capabilities, but there is certainly a market trend. Well, if you consider growth of 752% in one year substantial, which I do. Getting left in the dust on the Blaggywebs is not in my future, so I bounce from one thing to another. Always tweaking, always p0wning.

That is why at the bottom of each post on this here Kingdom of Suckage, there is a "Bookmark Toggle." That has been hanging around on this blog for about two years now, and I am unsure that anyone has ever used it. That is for YOUR convenience so you can share my Kingly Mediocrity with everyone that you know. We all get richer that way, too!*

Lemme show you how to "Tweet" a post of free-range awesome. But, quickly ADD ME, my Twitter thangy button is under......dammit just look straight to the right. (Under "Contact and Feed.")

This is a screenshot of Sir Stupid's blerk. At the top of this screenshot, you shall notice a big red "A." That is a tag, that is only available in Firefox that allows you to "Tiny2Twitter." This crops the url of the post and immediately vomits it into your personal Twitter stream and all of the cool kids that "follow" you shall see that you read crap. And laugh at you behind their cupped hand.

If you don't use Firefox as your browser, method "A" is unavailable to you, so we move on.

Further down on the screenshot, you shall see a big red "B." This shows you the pulldown on the "Bookmark" thingy. If you click on the toggle, the little square shown directly below it that says "Bookmark & Share" pops up. From this menu, you select the social bookmarking method of your choice. For this exercise, I chose "More" (shown as "B1") because Twitter is under that tabby thang.

After clicking "More," the large box with ALL of those social bookmarking tools pops up. Shown as "B2," is the Twitter selection. When you click this bad boy, the url to the post is immediately dumped into your Twitter stream. And we are all happy because we have all made even more money, yet again!*

Just so you know, you can use the Bookmark toggle to add any post on this blarq to Facebook, My Space, Digg, Reddit, Delicious, or a whole BUTTLOAD of other services. Use it, and your friends will think that you are awesome and send you even more money.**

By the way, if you are an Ol' Coot and can't figure these things out, there is always the old stand-by of e-mailing it to your peeps. See the envelope on the comment line? Just click that, Papaw, it will e-mail the post to all of your buddies in the nursing home.

Please take the time to comment.

*Not really, I have never pocketed a single chunk of coinage from this blarg.

**Good luck on that, for more, see *.
