My favorite tech news aggregator Techmeme has just rolled out a new feature aimed at helping anyone make sure that interesting tech news are published on Techmeme’s site main site through an easy submission method using Twitter Tweets.
It’s not surprising that Techmeme would utilize Twitter over other similar services as a way to get news through the Techmeme streams, instead of Facebook and others. Twitter is perhaps the most practical and convenient way of sharing news items to all Techmeme.
Before you use the new Techmeme feature to your hearts delight, here are some important facts about new feature:
- Techmeme will get the target URL for redirectors
- suggest news that will help Techmeme more popular
- submission of news items/stories can only be done in moderation
- uses Twitter Search APIs
Now sending a tip to Techmeme is easily accomplished by including “Tip@Techmeme” to a Twitter message.
Now here’s the fun part, when your articles or news items get published in Techmeme, your Twitter ID will be displayed at the bottom of the story you submitted. So it does not only give value to the news items, but also to users for promoting their Twitter account.
