I do have a Twitter accoount, but have not used it in ages. I never got into it like I have FaceBook. It is an excellant way to spread the word about ORR. There is an ORR site of page on FaceBook and it needs more use.

I'll have to go back and check Twiter out. It's been so long I'll be lost.

New things Coming!

We have a new administrator/guru on staff! We hope to add many new features such as the "Tweet This" button, video options and other neat things you have asked for.

This is going to be a great improvement to the site that will make it easier to invite visitors!

Attention KE5ZRT & KE5ZRU...

Getting Twitter running is on our list of things to do. I found the "hooks" for it. We may need a Twitter "moderator/administrator"...are you guys game for that?

Radio,

My original suggestion was to add a "share this" or "tweet this" button to each thread to allow easier sharing of site content by individual ORR users through social media. However, an ORR Twitter account is a good idea also.

I currently maintain 3 twitter accounts- 2 of them are personal accounts and 1 is for our amateur radio emergency service group. I/We might be able to run a fourth account for you. What are your expectations of me?

I'm not too sure just yet. Twitter is on our list of things to do. Right now we are trying to filter out Chinese search engines and various hacker IP addresses without cutting into legitimate audience. (fine line, there) When we get that figured out, then I'll advise. I 'm hoping for a hands-free operation, but if you are going to input into twitter, then it would make sense you'd have to sigh up with them.

The next major project is the "favorite links page" and there will be a sections for clubs and such. Since you have a link to ORR.net on your club site, you get a reciprocal link back. Please PM me the URL.

One we get the link page rolling where I can manage it on my own, then we will turn to social media.
