WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast

I recently installed the plugin Wordpres SEO by Yoast on my this blog, and others. It was recommended by one of those top 10-20-50 WordPress Plugin posts you find all over the place.

You can read more about Yoast and their plugin on their website http://yoast.com/articles/wordpress-seo/

One of the features that comes in handy quite often when writing a new post or page, is the Snippet Preview as seen below:

It hangs out just below the content box when you’re writing up your page or post, and it provides a preview of what your article will look like when its posted on Facebook or other sites that take a preview of your article.

Looking at Cassandra (DB) and Hiphop (Compiling PHP to Native C)

I was all over the internet one day and ran into a project called Cassandra. Which was opensourced by Facebook and is being developed by Apache committers as well as other major companies.

I also dug up another Facebook related project called Hiphop, which compiles PHP into native C to boost performance. Also used by Facebook.

Twitter App for Facebook is Broken! But Twitter Support is Non-Existant!

I have had time to blog that much, but since I’ve got some time today. I thought I might talk about how I’ve stumbled upon my own issues with Twitter. I’ve talked to https://twitter.com/fabbrunette about her issues with her password reset problems and Twitters phone verification not working at all. And then the on going issue of actually trying to get help without a login.

But lets cover my problems, because its all about me today. Ha.

The problem, I can’t add the Twitter application to my Facebook account. I know, I know, applications are the suck. But I thought I would have my twitter followers and facebook friends enjoy the comfort of my ramblings equally. Instead of favouring one platform, I can get the attention of my IRL (In Real Life) friends and my Twitter “followers”.

When I try to add the application, it asks for my login. I input my login and then am greeted with a “Wrong username or password”. So I decided to be smart about it, and use my email address, same outcome. So I change my password, same outcome. So I create a new Twitter account to see if that works. First try, same outcome, second try it works.

I don’t understand. Like seriously, I know I might sound a little annoying and bitchy, but it gets better.

So who do I talk to about this issue? Well Twitter of course, so I decided to click the “Help” and see what I might get out of this. To my surprise there is already a topic on the issue.

It might not be the issue im experiencing exactly, but its the right topic. But the comments are closed, so what to do now?
