New features on squashblog!

Twitter logoTwo new features on squashblog this week: a 'ratings' widget and a feed from the new squashblog Twitter page ...

The ratings feature beneath each article on the squashblog home page lets you tell me what you think about a blog posting at the click of a button. Rate each article on a scale of one to five stars, and click the info button to see how others have rated the writing.

The new squashblog Twitter page is a first for web coverage of squash. Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as 'tweets'), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Screengrab of ratings widgetUpdates are displayed on the new squashblog Twitter page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them.

Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email or through an application such as Twitterrific or Facebook. So, for instance, I can now email live updates during a tournament and banter with other squash fans.

You can see squashblog Twitter updates to the right of this page (in the navigation bar) or visit the new squashblog Twitter page itself.

At present the Twitter community for squash is small - change that by signing up: it's free!
