Hey interesting reading! I have just been toying with this whole issue for my blog. What I would like is a weekly digest which I can edit before publishing (to make it just the fun/interesting/funny tweets and not the dross!) and this way I can decide against posting if I think its not appropriate. I think there is some value in sharing tweets but I also gather that these posts can be irritating to some. My recent blog post goes into it a bit. Any advice or suggestions for a user would be much apreciated!

A good solution, Josh! Unfortunately, as a Livejournal subscriber, I'm considered to be too low-tech to put together anything like what you have implemented. Even using Google Analytics is considered too risky - depends on embedded JavaScript which is disallowed. One of the things that Twitter has provided me is a clearer indication of who cares about what I write, which is missing from my blog.

Looks like Dave Winer has noticed the same problem (less frequent blogging due to Twitter): Dave, feel free to steal my ideas, as they weren't originally mine in the first place. ;-)

@ThomasHan you're very welcome! :-) @Brent I remember your cool little Twitter logo bullets. I might just do that. :-) And the GMT thing is bugging me, but there's got to be a way to change/hack that in the source. I'll have a poke around (and yes, it would be better to get a fix or a workaround that doesn't involve hacking the source file).

Thanks for setting it up this way. I find the "daily digest" Tweet posts to be quite annoying for the folks I follow.
