Tech Note: Most-Tweeted Articles and LGF Pages
I’d like to draw your attention to our left sidebar, where you’ll see two new additions to the list of “drop-down” links: “Tweeted Articles,” and “Tweeted Pages.”
These new drop-down lists show you the most-tweeted (in other words, posted on Twitter) LGF front page articles and user-submitted LGF Pages, in the last 7 days. I can already see that LGF Pages have been getting increasingly noticed on Twitter; congrats to the authors, and keep up the great posts!
Also, another tech note that doesn’t affect anything you see on LGF, but does speed up page loading: the “retweet” counters you see at the upper right of each post (next to the blue Twitter button) are now cached at 90-second intervals, instead of making calls on every page load to the bit.ly API — which can take some time. Caching the results makes pages finish loading faster, and is also less demanding on the bit.ly API, which should make them happy.
