I know - been a while since I have written a post on PoliticalWarez - and things have been busy. But wanted to share the love in terms of things that can help the campaign out as you move forward. On Political Gastronomica, I left a post for people to understand how to improve their search engine ranking though do-it-yourself SEO/SEM efforts. Today, from my experiences with Goodnight Burbank, I wanted to help in terms of twitter use.
"Twitter?", I hear you cry. Yes, twitter - the new microblogging service that the digerati and others are now using - which combines SMS and blogging into a simple 140+ character message that you can post anywhere and send to all who have subscribed to your twitter feed. You can use your mobile phone, your IM client or your web browser to microblog.
The Solution: iframes
iframes - that little feature kind of like AJAX, but not. Essentially we used a small bit of iframe magic and our own file for the twitter script to take care of the loading problem. Now, instead of waiting for the script to finish, we let the page load around the iframe, and the script finishes and fills in when the twitter server can.
