    So I've tried messing around with the Twitter tools plugin (which I believe is the one that has been recommended here?) on my autoblogs with limited success. I'm not really sure what the point of it is, or how to use it effectively. I'm not really into creating mass twitter accounts due to a lack of proxies and insufficient software (i've tried to free mass twitter program located in the member downloads with no luck). But looking at the twitter tools plugin, it doesn't seem to require many twitter accounts at all, or maybe I just don't know shit about Twitter?? :D


    Please enlighten me to this wonderful traffic driving tool, and what kind of success you guys have achieved with it. Thanks!

    I'm having a problem with the twitter tool not sending my posts as tweets. Maybe it's because of I have no followers/friends, but i dont think that should matter. I've tried setting it up in the options, i've tested my twitter account, and it said it was okay. I selected the "Enable option to create a tweet when you post in your blog" option and the "Set this on by default" option, yet still not tweets in my account. hmm...

    As for the "mass-follow" tool, do you have any free recommendations? :D

    I use twitterfeed with wordpress and blogger it sends updates to twitter everytime you update your blog. So far i have had no problems and it is free service.

    but does it actually use your post as the tweet and then link back to the original post? Because from my understanding that would be part of the benefit, getting automatic linkbacks from an authority like twitter.
