Easily viewing your Twitter history

Posted on August 16th, 2011 by Mark "Spike" Liu
We've gotten some requests to do some more interesting things with the all of the Twitter data we've collected. I just checked, and we now have over 50,000 tweets in our database to work with! It's about time we organized these tremendous updates better.

As of today, when you click on a twitter link within Leaguevine, you will be taken to a brand new Leaguevine page just for that Twitter user. You can view what teams that account is associated with, view all of the games that this account gave updates for, and when you click on those links, you can get a timeline of only the relevant tweets for that game. Here's an example page of what I'm talking about:

With this new functionality, it is even easier to go back in time and look back at the point by point history of your favorite games. If you click on the link to look at a single game's history, you get the full Twitter feed for that whole game.

Please keep the suggestions coming!

New Feature: Retweet Buttons Next to Every Tweet

Posted on October 29th, 2010 by Mark "Spike" Liu
I got a lot of good feedback from lots of people yesterday. The traffic spiked as soon as USAU Club Nationals started thanks to a lot of people spreading the word about Leaguevine. As the traffic went up, so did my list of user suggestions.

The one suggestion that I figured I could implement quickly last night was retweet buttons on every tweet. Now if you want to share a twitter update, you can just click on the "tweet" button that shows up when you hover over any tweet on Leaguevine. It'll jump to twitter for you and enter the text RT @someuser: (text of the tweet you want to retweet). Further, it'll append a link back to Leaguevine to help spread the word about the site. You are welcome to delete this link if your tweet is too long or you think it makes your tweet look ugly.

I hope this is useful to a bunch of you!


Leaguevine's Blog, Twitter, and Facebook are synched!

Posted on October 21st, 2010 by Mark "Spike" Liu
Technology is so cool these days. I'm sending this post from my gmail and as soon as I click send it shows up on the Leaguevine blog, on Leaguevine's twitter page, and on Leaguevine's facebook page immediately! Awesome.

Everything I post on the blog will always show up in the twitter/facebook pages. I'll use the twitter account @leaguevine to connect with other tweeters and the facebook account to talk to people who prefer saying things on facebook. So basically the blog will show up in facebook/twitter but the facebook/twitter stuff won't show up on the blog.

Oh, and if you have feature suggestions or comments on other users' feature suggestions, please check out our support forums! I'll do my best to communicate as quickly as possible with you all. Thanks for all the feedback and support so far, it means a lot to me.
