I really think this is such a cool DEV use-case: Taking a tweet and expanding on, replying to and generally going deeper on the idea.

I also think a browser extension which could add a button like this to Twitter would be kind of awesome if anyone wants to build that 😄

We actually have an existing Twitter extension we haven't touched in a while but would definitely welcome this added functionality if anyone wants to make a PR (along with some other needed updates 😬)

Bringing dev.to headlines to your Twitter browsing experience.

Installing

Go to The Chrome Store to download the extension.

To access development releases, simply download or clone this code and load as an unpacked extension.

Unpacked Extension

  • If you downloaded the code, unzip the file.
  • Open (chrome://extensions/) or select hamburger menu > More Tools > Extensions in the menu.
  • Enable the developer mode at top right.
  • Click Load unpacked extension... and select the chrome-extension folder.

Features

  • Display dev.to links on the sidebar of the Twitter desktop browser under other trends, bringing a bit more dev life into your Twitter browsing experience. Simple, eh?

Future features

Twitter is a great way to connect and collaborate with other developers, and it would be fun to build in features that did that. The dev.to team will be thinking of ways to do this, but contributions are super welcome.

It is important…

Anyway, sorry to go on a tangent, this just made me happy. 🙂

I like this too. If someone has created a tweet, there's already some interest in that subject. I liked this tweet in particular because I kept thinking about it a few hours later.

Better integration would be awesome!

Heh, I've done that a couple of times, about git and about starting Node projects. I like the spark that a tweet can form in your mind and send you down a rabbit hole following ideas and writing code and posts in response.

Absolutely!

The fastest way to get me to do something is to tell me it can't be done!
