[Issue] Twitter integration

A quick note to let you know that there is an issue in the feedly+twitter integration. The dev team is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. We will be releasing that fix by Friday night. As a temporary work around, you can use the buffer sharing option to post your tweets. We will update this post as soon as we have more information.

Feedly+Twitter Integration Offline until Sunday [Back Online]

Twitter announced the New Twitter today. We are taking the feedly+twitter integration offline for a couple of days to transition to the new twitter @anywhere API. Thank you for your patience.

Update / sept 19th, 2010: we just pushed out feedly 3.x.304 for firefox, safari and chrome. This update offers a new iteration of the feedly + twitter integration based on OAuth and the Twitter REST API and should work all users (old twitter and new twitter). You can get 3.x.304 from http://www.feedly.com

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.

#Q

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.
