    I’m using “twitter tools” on my first site about Twitter ( , and it’s got a lot of features!
    E.g. it’s possible to send a tweet when you publish a post on your blog!

    awesome!! I’ve been waiting for a plugin like AVH Amazon ever since the old Amazon wishlist plugin author stopped coding. that is totally awesome! I can’t imagine anyone wanting a splash screen on their blog. thats like saying u want your users to download a shareware program to their computers that reminds them to register. Nothing takes a shareware program off the market faster then one of those nag screens, and I imagine the same would be true for a blog. If I saw a blog with one of those on it, it would tell me loud and clear “the author doesn’t want me visiting this site no more”, or I don’t want to visit this site no more, even if it was a celebrity blog. lolol

    Well, I was going to have a go at the idea of using a splash screen (which are terrible usability-wise), but when I checked out the plugin’s home page, it says that it’s for “adult sites”:

    you really need a splash screen that tells the visitor to go away if they are under age.

    Fair enough I guess…

    Not sure about the Autotitle plugin either – the title is one of the most important things to consider. I guess not everyone cares about SEO (and traffic)?
