Like many companies, we use twitter to listen to tweeple in our industry (real estate professionals on Twitter) and use wordpress as our blogging platform. So naturally it would make sense that at some point the two platforms will co-mingle online. For example when we write a blog post on “what is an easement“, we’ll generally send out a tweet with a link letting our twitter friends know about the new post. And conversely, we want the visitors who visit our blog first to know that we are on twitter as well.
Letting our blog readers know that we’re on twitter can happen a number of ways. But for today, I want to show you how we added Twitter’s widget to the sidebar on our site (notice it to the right of this post). This handy little tool not only let’s our readers know that we’re on twitter, it also let’s them know what we’re talking about and who we’re talking with.
