There are plenty of VBulletin add-ons for twitter, where each post that gets x amount of replies or views gets tweeted, right?

I'd totally enjoy seeing tweets from Chiefsplanet coming through my sports tweet feed. http://twitter.com/chiefsplanet

Maybe you could get a couple of CPers to reply to mentions? Flopnuts or SureOz or someone?

But, if you could automate the tweets with set filtered parameters... so that the thread needs to trigger some set level of popularity before it gets tweeted...

The Ghost of Kurt Cobain or Tom "Shut Yo Mouth" can't come in post a thread and also spamming twitter.

Especially since SaveOurChiefs has thousands and thousands... CP should have a few instead of 2, right?

Thoughts?

So, you're saying a link to a thread with a bunch of responses gets tweeted into your timeline (if you follow an @Chiefsplanet account)? Is that right?
Or the actual post gets tweeted if it's responded to enough, or maybe gets enough rep?

The amount of idiots that came here after the banners is just ridiculous.

Twitter would be a death sentence, IMO.

I don't think you'd want every thread... if there were a VB plugin to do that sort of thing. I'm not sure how selective you can be, or if it's a firehose.

That sounds like a terrible idea. DJ's Left Nut would never be featured on twitter. His posts are too long.

You'd have to post the links, and then all that would show up on the twitter feed is a bunch of direct links to the posts.

I doubt I'd follow it, if that's what you're asking. Unless it was for selfish reasons where I thought it would somehow get me more retweets or followers

Well, the idiots are pretty much locked down, right? You have to have 100 or 200 posts to start a thread?

This is about making the information for CP more accessible. CP breaks a lot of news for me. It would be good to have the best threads tweeted.

I don't know why people dislike twitter, really. To me it's like a game. You post something and see how many responses or retweets you get. It gives you a sort of thrill to see something you wrote retweeted 100+ times.

Ah, well... if there were a way to tie in your VBulletin CP account to your twiter account... maybe a plugin could tweet your name beside tweet.

I'd assume that Austin does. If not, it would be fairly easy to get the account back from Twitter for copyright issues.

Do you use http://Favstar.fm? You should go there, follow a bunch of people who follow and favorite hilarious tweets.

Then when you say something funny... you'll have a larger, more influential audience who will amplify your shit.

It would be a good idea to tweet out threads for the media.

I'm pretty "meh" on that one. I wouldn't something that auto-posts stuff to Twitter for sure, and I question the value of someone just reposting stuff on there to try and drive traffic. If people like it here, they'll stick around. If they don't, they don't.

IMO, ChiefsPlanet is a kickass discussion board. No need to try and be a social media empire. That's never been the goal.

(But that said, I just pretend to have some say in macro issues like this.)

Does it really?? I would love to have tweets from chiefsplant without me doing shit, just because a topic I replayed to had so many replies.

I know he can be obnoxious sometimes, but he's been the first to post a vast majority of major Chiefs news lately (e.g., Routt being canned, Romeo stepping out of DC, etc.).

Which is a problem in of itself. I have the douchewad on ignore so I don't have to read his retarded posts, which makes it difficult to read the OPs of the threads he starts. I'd be fine if someone else posted them. Same with that other fucktard who thinks it's "kewl" to cram as much softcore porn as possible into everyone of his posts, but yet seems to start a lot of Chiefs threads.

That's fine and all. But I would be willing to bet his tweets(?) have been more wrong than right. It just bogs down the board with rumors, which is fine and all for awhile. It just gets rather redundant.

This coming from a guy who doesn't get into twitter. So take it how you will.
