Hi there, instead of manual web spotlights, I’ll use my twitter stream to update you once a week with interesting web & technology stuff. I got the idea from Aarron Walter’s blog and it didn’t take long to find a WordPress plugin that does the dirty work.
This plugin creates a post which you can manually edit. It’s a nice way to prevent some important tweets to get lost in the chirping twitter universe. And it saves me time to focus on the more heavy-weighted tutorial-like blog posts. My existing twitter friends might skip these posts, however they might implement this plugin on their own blogs as well.

Options screen of Twitter Digest
Printscreen of tweet digest plugin’s options. You might want to put a high number of “Maximum number of tweets to retrieve” to make sure it takes all tweets and you can filter out what is of interest for your blog post. I like it!
