Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

#kt2 -- Kossacks Tweet Too!

Our goal: amplify our voices by making it very easy for kossacks with twitter accounts to follow each other on twitter, and to find and respond to each other's tweets by using the hashtag #kt2. It's working -- there are now dozens of tweets by Kossacks every day that add the hashtag. You can easily find them by entering #kt2 in the twitter search field.

And, by combining our hashtag with the tags for other large progressive groups, like #UniteBlue, we are greatly expanding our outreach to other areas of the progressive universe, and promoting Daily Kos by providing links to the excellent diaries and stories posted here.

This is diary #6, and there are now almost 150 of us on this list. Not yet following everyone here? It's really easy to follow any of us on the list -- just go down the list and click on the button of anyone you'd like to follow. If their button is grayed out, you are already following them.

To have your twitter button added to the diary list below, simply leave a comment, with your twitter name preceded by @ in the header, and you will be added to the top of the New Additions list in the diary, right below the orange croissant. That makes it easy for anyone to return to the diary and click on newly added buttons in order to follow them. You'll also be added to the cumulative alphabetical listings (front pagers are shown separately) that appear right below the New Additions, so you won't need to repost your twitter handle again.

Your #kt2 team has been busy at work finding more of us. If a Kossack has their twitter handle listed in their profile here, we take that as meaning that they'd be happy to have their name on this list, and we've been adding them as we find them.

If you'd like to join our #kt2 group, please drop us a message.

We'd also highly recommend the extensive Fellow Kossacks twitter List compiled by RLMiller, with over 200 names. We are going through that list and adding the names here if the person has included their twitter handle in their DKos profile. Please take advantage of that list, too.

Please also check out the other active twitter group here: DKos TWEETers, run by Angie in WA State, which provides tons of useful info about using and getting the most out of twitter.

The buttons below may load slowly, especially if you have a dial-up connection. Just give it a minute and they will all be there. Soon, we'll maintain the button list as a separate standing diary that will always be updated, and the weekly diaries will change to a format that only includes the follow links, not the full buttons, which will load much faster.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy #kt2 tweeting.
