Is there a Twitter account associated with this forum, like there is with Nexus 7 forum please?

Yes, there's links to it near the top of the front portal page as well as a follow button on the left side right under the facebook and google+boxes.

Here's the link:  https://twitter.com/Nexus10Forum

Thanks.

I always use Tapatalk so don't see those links.

Account now followed. I'm your 1st follower 8)

When you tweet, is there any way of putting what the link is about in the tweet please, as there is only a link.

The content might, or might not, interest me, but without the info, I can't make that decision without opening the link (which also opens directly in Chrome and not Tapatalk, but I think that's a "local" issue).

TIA.

Good question.  I haven't really been able to figure out how to do that as it's an automated tweet that occurs when I post an article to Facebook.   I'll look at the settings more closely to see if I can figure out how to have the article title included as well.   If anyone reads this and knows a way to do this let me know.

**I think I've figured out how to do this.   I've installed a 'pretty url' mod that now makes the url of all links using the text of the topic rather than the encoded url that this software usually uses.  Should be much easier to figure out what a page is about from the url is from now on, especially for Twitter users.**

Nice, thanks.

Will keep an eye out for your next tweet.

Will you do same for Nexus 7 forums as well, if it's OK?

Doesn't seem to be working as still only getting a link.

Unfortunately I've looked into it and it seems Twitter does not let me disable their 'link shortening' so we're stuck with it until I figure out a workaround.   i've read up on it in a number of different boards and they used to allow you to disallow this 'shortening' so you could see the entire url which could let you see often what the tweet is about...but they don't allow this anymore for spam purposes apparently.   Sorry, if i come up with a solution I'll let you know.

So you posted to Facebook which creates a tweet?

I follow other people that do the same and don't have problems so it must be possible somehow.

Thanks for looking into it.
