Today’s Links

I am looking for an automated way to post links to interesting China stories that I Twitter and/or tag in my RSS reader. Any suggestions for a solution are much appreciated. In the meantime I will do it manually, and probably sporadically.

    hello, i m @xiaomi2020 on twitter. I am an on-line English2Chinese translator. found your site by search. Here is my way of posting my interested site automatically to twitter. If you use GR, enable your buzz, then use feedburner to feed the buzz to your twitter account. search “buzz to twitter”, and u can get a lot of posts of know-how.
    Everytime you share anything on GR, u will automatically send a buzz, then transferred to twitter.

    It seems to me that you’re using WordPress for this blog, aren’t you? In that case there’s a clever little plugin that will help you: Twitter Tools. It will create blog posts from your tweets and vice versa or you can have it post a digest of your tweets once a day/week. The formatting doesn’t always work 100%, especially hash tags often get lost, but it’s really great for getting your tweeted links into your blog.
    As for the connection between your reader and your blog, the best way, as Xiaomi already pointed out, is to connect buzz and your tweet account using this tutorial: http://blog.louisgray.com/2010/02/how-to-bring-your-google-buzz-entries.html

      Thanks. I found twitter tools and installed it. But I do not like that it auto-publishes. Do you know how I can set it to bring in my tweets for a blog post but not auto-publish but instead create a draft that i can edit and then manually post?

    If you don’t like Buzz but have Google Reader, it’s easy to simply “share” the items you find interesting, which will publish a new feed that you can make public or private. For example, my list of shared feeds is here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/SpragueProRead (note that Google lets me give it an special URL which I can publicize and then change later without having to update all my readers).

    Google Reader also has a simple bookmarking feature you can add to your browser to that you can flag arbitrary web pages to your list of links.

    and, bad news: it seems you switch the link to bit.ly service, which is already blocked in China.
