Sharing WordPress Posts on Twitter

As part of our competency task we need to share our WordPress blog posts on Twitter. This sounds tricky, but it’s actually really easy!

WordPress has a really easy to understand tutorial here, which explains how to approve a connection between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account.
