Project Description

This project adds social connectors to NewsGator Social Sites® for SharePoint 2010. It allows you to send your activity feeds outside of your organisation (to Twitter and LinkedIn) simply by adding tags in the message.


This project is not an official NewsGator product, and therefore not supported by NewsGator.


  • Post activity feed messages to your personal Twitter account by adding #tw tag
