Tweet Your MapSkip Stories by admin
If you have a Twitter account, you can now let MapSkip tweet your stories to the world!
As of today, we have now Twitter integrated into the story editor- which allows you to tweet a link to your latest MapSkip story automatically when you publish. If you have a Twitter account, you can go to your Passport in MapSkip and in the User Information tab you can now authorize a connection between your Twitter account and your MapSkip account.
Just click the link, log into Twitter, and authorize the connection. And don’t worry - MapSkip never sees your username and password in Twitter: We are using the open OAuth protocol, which was specifically designed to allow users of sites like Twitter and MapSkip to connect their accounts without sharing passwords with anybody.
Once you have your Twitter account authorized, you will see an extra field at the end of the story editor in MapSkip, which automatically will be populated with the title of your story - but you can change the text of that tweet to whatever you want. Just keep in mind that MapSkip will add a short link at the end of the text, so you are limited to just 100 characters. Happy Tweeting!
