Using Twitter from LeapFish

This post is part of a blog series on "Why I like LeapFish". It is also an entry into the LeapFish $100,000 Cash Dash contest, which you can signup for here.

In this blog post, I'll be covering the Twitter widget on LeapFish. On your own customizable LeapFish home page, you'll have a section for Twitter that you can use to stay up to date on your Twitter stream, as well as post, reply to and retweet tweets.

To do this, scroll down to the Twitter widget located on the right hand column about half way down the LeapFish home page and click on the "Sign in with Twitter" button. This will bring up a new OAuth window, which asks you for permission to allow LeapFish to access your Twitter account. Click on yes to allow LeapFish to access your Twitter account and then you will be returned to the LeapFish home page and your Twitter account will be active.

Inside the Twitter widget, you'll see options for Refresh, Home, @ Replies, Direct messages, search and other options. Underneath that you'll see a "What's Happening?" text box, where you can post Twitter updates and click the Update button to send out some tweets. There's also a "Shorten URL" tool and underneath that, you're friends stream.

It almost looks exactly like the homepage itself. The Twitter widget is definitely a nice feature on LeapFish and it's very handy to be able to check on your stream as well as post Twitter updates all from one personalized home page. Check it out on
