Questions to ponder…
Q: Twitter or Facebook? Which is most effective for your site?
It depends. Some publishers in this session use Twitter for quick fact dissemination. Some use FB for listening and making comments about what’s going on the home site.

Measured Voice — allows you to make each post/Tweet slightly different
Dlvr.it — schedule things to trickle out at particular times.
