My Trending Post is a plugin which search for Trending Topics on Twitter every hour. It then compare the Trending Topics with your post's blog and send a tweet with a link to your post if it match with the topic.

Features:

  • An automatic tweet from a user defined twitter account, with a link related to one of your blog's post and the World trending topic (the plugin will check for Trending Topics every hours)
  • An hashtag will be added after the link, with the matched's topic
  • A smart algorithm to separate concatenated camel words (e.g. #10FavouriteBands ==> 10 Favourite Bands) and so increase the matching between yours posts and the trending topics (often concatenated)
  • The post sent will be flagged and so won't be sent again until 7 days
