My understanding is that you would simply tweet your updates via Twitter. A number of people do just that. Let me know if I have misunderstood the question.

Okay yea I understand what you mean Monique. But some people may being doing a lot and might take longer to just tweet all the updates. But okay.

Hey everyone,

We found something that may work for you. Check out this link: http://www.ehow.com/how_2338130_set-u...

If you use your blog's RSS feed URL, you should be able to setup automatic tweets whenever you do a new blog post by using http://twitterfeed.com/.

We've tested and it works!

Let us know if you need more detailed steps and we'll be glad to help.

Hi Marije,
I have tried this way. But it says
"We couldn't find valid date/time stamps or GUIDs on items. Please make sure your feed contains valid pubDate entries or GUIDs for each post."
So i checked my RSS feed url, it is correct and works fine.
So now wht can i do in this case? Is there any other solution to add my site's Job Postings to twitter automatically?

Hi Marije,

From those posts I understand that a new post doesn't automatically generate a tweet but rather there is a check done at some specified period and if there's a new post then it's sent as a tweet?

If that is right then what's a good check period?

Hi Peter,

Correct, if you choose half an hour, it will check your blog for new posts every 30 minutes. I guess a good check period depends on how often you blog and how quickly you want it to pick it up. I would go for 30 minutes just because that's the shortest time period and you don't have to wait for what feels like forever to see when the tweet comes through!

Thanks Marije,

Your solutions is so obvious. I was focusing on the once or twice weekly blog postings and ignoring the fact that checking for non posts is as much part of it.

I'm clear

marije,

There seems to be some conflicting advice on this. The RSS feed associated with Yola seems to have a frequency limit with an indirect warning that over calling could cancel your RSS feed. Could you sus this out . It's all new ground.:)

Hi Marije,

It was on the Yola site and I think it was something to do with the Yola blog and subscription to the feed.

can I find it again? :(

Hey Peter - I want to check with a developer on this matter and I'll come back to you as soon as I have something. Apologies for the delay :)

No. That's OK. I just feel a bit bad that I gave you the question and can't locate the data.

You were using your own blog's feed, right? We don't see any reason for this warning to happen and can't replicate on our side. If you could keep an eye out for it and come back to us with more details if you see it, we would appreciate it!
