Interesting… It appears that new Twitter is better than old twitter. Third party apps no longer dominate the space only 42% of tweets now come from 3rd party clients.

Tumblr can be many things, including your blog… I want to share how I use the network and some tips I have learned along the way in this series.
If you are a wordpress blogger you can build a custom CSS theme, so your tumblr matches your wordpress blog. (You do have the option to sell them) If you are not tech savy, or you don’t know what CSS is there are literally hundreds of options, give your self a few hours and have fun.
Most themes have very simple Disqus integration. (More on this latter Disqus is a commenting system that allows anyone to comment)
Most themes allow you to customize colors as well…
Addicted to Data?
Many themes have allow you to embed Google analytics through an ID. If that is not an option you can embed analytics script in the info section.
The simple truth…
Don’t expect to find the right theme on the first shot, make your theme a statement about you.
