My new favorite toy is Tweet Scan, just enter in what you’d like to look for and it will come back with all the public tweets with that item in it. Scanning for Jott usually returns example of people testing out the Twitter Jott Link for the first time. Understandably, people walk into Jott Links a little apprehensively, as for most people it’s their first time posting to a website from their cell phone. I thought in honor of my new found love for Tweet Scan and our Twitter Jott Link, I’d shed some light on a few frequently asked Jott Link questions.
1) Can you create a Jott Link for ______ web service that I love?
We get tons of requests for specific Jott Links, and though we’d love to be able to create them all, we don’t really have the time to do so (we’re only 20 people!). However, you can create a Jott Link all your own! There are directions on how to create your own Jott Link in the Developers section. Not a developer? It may be a little tricky to follow along if you are not familiar with HTML, but you can always write and ask the folks at the other company if they could help, or better yet build it themselves!
2) Where is the Amazon Jott Link?
Already there for you! When we create new features, whenever possible, we like to include an example one so that you can try it out right away without having to add anything to your account. The Amazon Jott Link acts like a global contact- meaning that it is already added to everyone’s account so as soon as you sign up you can give a Jott Link a try. If you haven’t tried yet, give it a go. The Amazon Jott Link is a pretty handy way of getting information on pricing and products from Amazon and was talked about today in Lifehacker’s Top 10 Amazon Power Shopper Tools post.
3) What the heck is a Blogger ID?
We will be adding this to the FAQ soon, but in meantime, here is the definition of a Blogger ID straight from the folks at Blogger themselves:
“First, log in to Blogger. Then choose the blog whose ID you want to find, and click on its name in the Dashboard, just like you do when you want to post to it, or change the settings.
From any of the posting, settings, or template pages, you can find your blog’s ID number. Just look in your browser’s address bar, and you’ll see something like this:
At the end of the address, you can see that it says
blogID=XXXXXX where the X’s represent your blog’s ID. In the example above, this is 5910562.”
