Twitter Quotes aka #Q (2.x.104)

As part of 2.x.104, we slightly improved the feedly+twitter integration, introducing twitter quotes (also known as #Q). When you are reading an article, you can highlight and tweet quotes you find interesting. Here is what it looks like:

Twitter Quotes

As you can see, when you highlight some text, a contextual menu automatically appear. One of the actions in that menu is Tweet, allowing you to easily share quotes on twitter in 2 clicks.


As a convention, we are prefixing twitter quotes with #Q so that over time people can do interesting things using the search engine (you are welcome to create your own convention).

Similarly, if you are on a web page and use select some text before you click on the tweet action on feedly mini, you will see a similar behavior.

This is the first of a long series of features we will be releasing in November and December around the theme “Make sharing easier”.

Looking forward to your feedback!

PS 1: the behavior of the translate feature was inspired by a presentation from @azaaza regarding “more personal browsers”.

PS2: These feature are available now in the 2.x.104 version of feedly for firefox and will be available in the 0.8 version of feedly for chrome which should go out next week.

  1. Hi, I’m a great fun of Feedly. It’s very nice to hear that it is constantly evolving and getting new features.

    I’d like to Feedly works on newset build of Firefox (3.7a1pre), but what is more important to Feedly support SeaMonkey 2. There is now feed reader for SeaMonkey 2, now.

    I manage to install Feedly under SeaMonkey 2, but it doesn’t work even after switching user-agent to Firefox 3.5.4 (which is full compatible with SeaMonkey 2.0).

    I’m wandering if support for SeaMonkey could be one of Feedly’s goals. Sorry for posting it hear, but hope to get some answers here on at my e-mail.

  3. Anytime you get an email that leads to you getting irinomatfon on free Internet resources it is a blessing, and there are so many available for us to use. I am a big user of Kompozer and Filezilla and I am still amazed at how well these programs work, and even more amazed that they are free.So I thank you Mark Flavin because as usual some more great stuff that you have given us.Paul

  4. First the positive aspect:It looks and feels amazing, including the themes.What I don’t like:After the “Popular” page you removed the second page I used most frequently, the “Cover” page. This page gave me a perfect overview over important posts from my all my categories because of its excellent layout. The new “My Feedly” page takes me just about forever to scroll down to the end on my 13″ MacBook. Not good for a quick overview at all.You seemed to concentrate a lot on the “Essentials” feature. If I wanted to read preselected news, then I would read a newspaper. So that’s exactly the opposite of what feedly should be about in my oppinion. Feedly should be all about personalized news. Features like “Cover” and “Popular” were what made feedly so useful and unique for me. This and its great layout and style (which you definitly did improve!). If you want to help people find new sources the “Popular” and “You Might Also Like” feature would be sufficient.And why on earth did you remove the option to view all posts of a category sorted by their date? Apart from the few featured posts, they are all sorted by sources. With about 15 to 20 sources per category it takes ages just to scroll down to see posts from all sources. Well, there is still grid view, but I prefer this view only for photo feeds. I’m sorry to say that without this simple feature it makes feedly just a good looking Google Reader theme, because I have to click (or scroll) through all of my sources one after the other, in contrast to the customized “news channels” I had before, that didn’t care from which of my sources a post was.What I also do miss is to be able to quickly remove posts without reading them. In categories with fewer posts per week there often are posts that I know I’m never going to read, but because I don’t read them they stay in there for weeks an clutter my pages.As a longtime and everyday feedly user I’m far from giving up on feedly, but I want to express my concern about some features missing, that I consider core functionality. Besides, did I mention that the new feedly looks great?

  5. , “Say, I was just going to take this Cessna up for a test. We’ve had some trouble with the landing gear. Why don’t you come up with me and we can have a visit!” I looked at him in horror and he laughed when he realized what I was envisioning. He added, “I’m pretty sure I have fixed it. There should be no trouble!” What a treat that was for me! My first and last time in the cockpit of a plane. Johnny even let me “drive” it as we soared over the city.It was Trayton’s and my good fortune when Lorrie and Alex moved to Toronto. That meant that Uncle Johnny and Aunt Lorraine would come to see their daughter and family. It also meant that we could look forward to those yearly visits, too. One time we made a trip with Johnny to the cottage. It was so much fun to sit cozily in front of the fire, with Trayton prodding Johnny with questions about John’s ambition as a kid, his experiences during the war and the setting up of the Prairie Flying Service in Regina. We sat for hours enjoying Johnny recount those years with such gusto and humour. On our return to Toronto, we stopped in Trenton at the air base to show Johnny where a plaque had been placed in memory of his brother Martin. We also wanted to show Johnny the Halifax, a bomber which had been brought up from the bottom of a lake in Norway and was being reconstructed in the RCAF Museum in Trenton. It was Johnny who pointed out to us that the Halifax a bomber, was a newer version of the Avro Lancaster (a plane he himself had flown). There was one difference, however. The Halifax was 9 inches longer than the Lancaster, a 9 inch space created so a tailgunner could keep his parachute near him for quick use, instead of storing it in the body of the plane. Trust Johnny to regale us with that little tidbit!We have all enjoyed Johnny’s storytelling. Here is one story he told me that always brings a smile to my face.The time is the dirty 30’s, the time of the depression. Johnny was about 10 or 11 years of age and it was his job to keep the water trough full of water for their horses, using a manual pump. He was not particularly happy that horses from neighbouring farms were frequenting this water hole. (During these hard times horses were allowed to roam freely, so they could scavenge for something to eat and drink.) The more horses that came to drink meant the more often Johnny had to fill the trough. He took a lingering look at the horses’ tails and, being the entrepreneurial type, he figured he might make a buck. Horsehair brought a good price – $1.50 to $2.00 a bag. He proceeded to manicure the tails of visiting horses, carefully avoiding cutting into the fleshy part of their tails. Over a period of time he collected six to seven bags of horsehair which he cleverly hid in the barn. One day when he went to recount his bags and gloat over his future wealth, he could not find them. They were gone! He learned that the bags had been discovered and taken – every last bag – to town to be sold and the proceeds of this sale had gone into the pot to help Anne and Mabel buy supplies they needed for normal school. This was not his plan! Word of what happened soon got around the countryside. Mr. MacMillan, who was a bachelor in town, commented to Johnny the next time he saw him, “Yeh, John, it sure was a tough winter – all the horses got short tails!” (Once John accepted the reality of his bungled plan, he has joked how he contributed to the girls’ education.)How wonderful it is to be able to call Uncle Johnny uncle, and to have shared such happy times together. I wouldn’t change this for the whole world. These memories are truly my treasures.Sending you all our love across the miles.Bette and Trayton

Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target.Dear Mrs. Samuel,Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Samuel, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.1) June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.2) July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House wares to go off at 5-minute intervals. .3) July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.4) July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ‘Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away’. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.5) August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.6) August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.7) August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’ EMTs were called.9) September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.10) September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.11) October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the ‘Mission Impossible’ theme.12) October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.13) October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled ‘PICK ME PICK ME!’14) October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!’And last, but not least:15) October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’ One of the clerks passed out.Ladies, how do you feel about taking your man shopping? 0Was this answer helpful?

  7. Multiple submarine cable fatlus are affecting the traffic throughout Asia and the U.S. So the direct connection to the MSN server did not work, the fact that you select http protocol bypasses this.
