This plugin allows you to automatically post your new posts on the twitter website. This is good because for example the iPod and iPhone for example have a large amount of twitter clients to pick from. Your blog posts will arrive to people while they are walking the streets.

FV Community News

Many blogs out there can only produce a couple articles a week while their visitors ask for loads more. It’s sometimes a good idea to add related articles from other blogs to your sidebar. Adding them manually takes lots of time we don’t have. With this new Community News plugin you allow your visitors to add articles to the sidebar. Complete with moderation panel and a settings page, you can sit back while you have full control about the look and articles that being posted.
