myScoop: Updates 20-11-09

I spent a few hours last night making a few changes to myScoop. Yeah I know last night was a Friday night but sometimes sacrifices need to be made in order to grow.

Auto-Tweeting new articles
Once a new article has been fetched, a shortened URI will be assigned to the article and the script will now automatically send the Title (shortened to 90 characters) and the shortened URI which redirects straight to your article. This method is similar to the Bookmarking section which sends the title, shortened URI and the first tag in a hash tagged format.

Blog Stats (Graph)
Each user that submits their blog to myScoop and uses the tracking code associated with that blog has the ability to track unique visitors. This is a LIVE measurement and shows unique visitors per day for the past week. See below.

Other minor changes
I have added the category drop down list to the page where users submit new blogs to myScoop.
