Option for reader to suscribe to Twitter?

  1. profile image0
    ryankettposted 8 years ago

    I was thinking that maybe a good new feature for hubpages would be an option on every hub to 'Follow me on Twitter'.

    I have found myself placing my Twitter address on some hubs, but would probably pay the price if I posted a twitter URL on each of my hubs.

    We have the option to 'Tweet' our hubs, but no option to build up our Twitter readership? Personally I believe that Twitter has great potential as a traffic source.

    We could stick this below the contact and RSS options, for those that choose to add this feature.

    Any thoughts?

    Yeah, could be a good idea, seeing as I have a twitter account now. I've got a button on my blog. And you could have one for facebook as well. Otherwise you could just put a link in your profile bio.

    At the first glance don't see any downside. So yes, I support this too, subject to available resources.

    We already can add links to our twitter page? Seems like an extra internal app that isn't needed.

      Yeah we can, but it doesnt look all that professional to just hyperlink the word 'Twitter' in a text capsule.... and too many external links can bring down scores right?

      In my opnion it would be used a hell of a lot more than 'Subscribe to RSS'....

    You could put a link in your profile for people to follow you on Twitter.

      I already have, but my profile doesn't really get a great deal of views..... less than 10% of my total, and I guess that most of those will be internal traffic.

      It is external traffic that I would like on my twitter, the people that may actually click through onto an ad..... at the moment I have 30 followers on my Twitter - 25 of them are hubbers - so tweeting is pointless?

                I'll miss my sargent though hmm

                And to answer Ryan - not a bad idea and it may encourage me to use Twitter more. Usually I just stare at it.
