Tweet me

Last week on puppetcamp, I was considering that it would be nice to have a scannable code to post some default twitter message with maybe a hash tag to get on the same page with the other people there.

This shouldnt be that difficult at any rate.
Create a QR code with the tweet you want people to post; add a “tweet me” title. And maybe a logo to persuade people that the qr contains info that has something to do with your event, for those that are afraid to scan just any QR code πŸ˜‰

 

The QR here is the one I put up at work today and contains “I scanned a QR code at @OpenFuture_be HQ and all I got was this lousy tweet”
Its a concept; there is space for improvement; but the concept is sound and simple.

Though apparently not enough for people to use some “Tweet Me” QR concept.

 

And on a related note .. It would be nice if there was a way to have the QR open your twitter app with that text. There is the option to open the browser with the parameter used in most social icons on blogs but this doesnt redirect to your app and most smartphone users dont use the web interface when there is a wonderful smartphone app ready for them. πŸ™‚

Edit: And to add insult to injury .. the twitter link above doesnt work if you force twitter to use https. It loses the parameter while switching from http to https.. #fail! So; for http or https *sigh* Defaulting to https in these links does work even if you dont force it in your twitter settings.
