Widget1Over the weekend @SJCallan and I launched the BostonTweet Widget. This widget is powered by Twitter & and gives anyone with a website the ability to add the Boston news feed to their website.

Not only does the widget pull information from @BostonTweet but it also allows anyone to post Boston news to the app by creating a new tweet with @BostonTweet in it. 

Get the code to spread the Boston Twitter community.

BostonTweet will soon be releasing a widget which can be embeded on your website and be updated by you for broadcast to all the embeded widgets. The BostonTweet widget enables anyone with a Twitter account to report Boston news & events directly to the widget by creating a new tweet with @BostonTweet in it. Currently you can broadcast updates directly to in the same manner but with the new widget we bring Boston news & events to a much larger audience!

Sweet Retweet!

gallery2.jpgThis afternoon BostonTweet & Sayagle started their three day Sweet Retweet promotion with Sweet Cupcakes. The original tweet from BostonTweet reads as follows:

@BostonTweet & @Sayagle are giving away 2 dozen Sweet Cupcakes (2 $36 gift cards)! RT to enter – drawing on 6/4

The power of Twitter continues to amaze me – especially when you have a niche and you target local.  Sweet Cupcakes is a Boston based bakery that sells cupcakes and BostonTweet talks about everything Boston – very straightforward. Well apparently Boston likes cupcakes and Twitter works, because after one tweet there have already been 80 retweets and 609 visitors to! Not bad for one tweet with at least three or four tweets to go!
