Model Report got itself a Twitter account @ModelReport.

Any story with 3 or more positive votes will be automatically Tweeted from that account.

      Only posts with 3 or more upvotes.

      The Model Report tweet bot is selective.

      Does this mean each new post to Model.Report also gets pushed to Twitter?

      Interesting development!

      As far as I can see the Story title in model.report can at maximum be 90 characters.

      So in a twitter age then we might be missing opportunity for greater reach or clarity 140 characters max

        We also include the links to the story and the original URL’s. We also include hashtags. So all those extra characters get used up quickly.

        Some questions arising from the twitter functionality

        • Do we need a general landing page?

          • What are the reasons people would choose to join?
          • If so what routes to membership are there?
        • Do we want a specific landing page for people who follow the source of tweets from model.report?

          • If so how can they join a trajectory which would allow them membership etc?
          • What can prevent potential abuses and be manageable for moderators?

        @scottfr @mikehaber @ryoung Each action can bring about so many more choices and perhaps necessary actions?!

        @scottfr I think when people are ‘mentioned’ with @theirusername then the url of the posting or comment is not a live link in the notification email. It could be much more efficient and produce more responses if it was a clickable link rather having to copy and paste.

          These are all nice to have, but not really something I have time for.

          In Gmail, the mention URL is a clickable link. We always send emails as plain text so it’s up to your email program to decide what to convert into a link.
