For the last year or two, there have been two Twitter chats that I regularly participate in. The Sunday night #blogchat discussion about all things blog-related and Tuesday night #AgChat where farmers, ranchers and friends talk about producing food, feed & fiber.

Don’t worry about missing #openwebaward tweets

Some of us have noticed that the tweets recognizing our votes don’t always show up. Thanks to Darin Grimm for doing a bit of looking into it.  His finding? The results should be logging as long as you get the thank you screen on the mashable site.  Don’t worry about the tweet — you can […]
