* From my Twitter page…
The old ScribbleLive feeds were causing problems on iPhones, IPads, etc. because they messed up the site’s rendering. The new ScribbleLive widgets won’t do that. But they’ll continue updating in real time, so, as before, there’s no need to refresh to watch those particular widgets do their magic.
* I added four ScribbleLive widgets. One for the Statehouse and one for breaking news are updates from before. I figured out how to add far more Twitter accounts, so lots more people/entities can be followed here.
One of the new feeds is for statewide/congressional candidates. I’ll update that list as more candidates begin Tweeting. The other new feed is for state legislators. There are close to 70 state legislative Twitter accounts, but not everyone actively Tweets.
* The feeds are limited to the ten most recent items, and they won’t display posted photos, but you can click the icon above an individual feed to see the whole thing.
All this adds up to even more reasons to visit CapitolFax.com during the day and even around the clock. Heck, you should probably keep your browser sitting here all the time.
* One day, maybe later this summer or in the fall, I hope to do a much-needed site revamp. But it won’t be a radical failure like the last one. I promise. It does need to be cleaned up, though, and I’ll get to it.
* Also, stay tuned for a new General Assembly iPhone app that I created with a national company. It’s done, I just haven’t rolled it out yet. Soon.
