I spent this past week making some new updates to JustRetweet, so I wanted to write a brief post describing a few of the features that just went live.
Blocking users – I’ve now added the ability for you to block certain members in your account. What this means is that you will not see a blocked user’s submissions on your Dashboard and they will not be able to see your tweets on theirs.
To access this feature, go to your ‘Settings’ tab and click on the new ‘Block Settings’ menu option. This will take you to a page where you can type in the name of the users you would like to block.
Change your mind? Then just click on the ‘x’ next to the username you want to unblock.
Scheduled Tweet limits – What was happening was that for some members who promote a lot of content on the site, their tweets were getting scheduled way into the future…sometimes more than a month later. This was causing complaints from members who were not seeing their content getting posted as expected.
I’ve now set a limit so that accounts can only promote up to 1 days worth of tweets in advance. I realize a few members might be unhappy with this change, but I feel this needs to happen to keep things fair for everyone.
Real link tooltips – Just a minor tweak, but I think it’s useful. If you hover over any link in your Dashboard, you will now be able to see the actual link url in the tooltip. A lot of submitted tweets use various url shorteners for their links, so this is an easy way to see the actual url of any tweet.
I’m hoping these changes will help create a better user experience for everyone. Have any comments or feedback? Please let me know in the comments.
