  1. using the first name on facebook rather then the whole name

    Would be better if instead of using the whole name on facebook...use just the person's first name. example if I am talking about something i did with my wife as a status I am not gonna say me and allison smith went to the mall today I am gonna say me and allison went to the mall today.

      The way we get the full name is by looking up the user’s Real Name on Twitter, which isn’t split into first and last names (nor is it always there).

      In theory if we added a ‘first names only’ setting, we could just post whatever we get from the Twitter Real Name up to the first space. But, that would probably result in a bunch of funky issues.

    • Option to expand 'RT' and 'OH'

      Turn 'RT' into 'ReTweet' and 'OH' into 'Overheard'. Any other common Twitterisms we should be handling?

      • Automatically expand Twitlonger.com messages

        When posting long Tweets, some Twitter clients allow you to post to Twitlonger.com to show more than 140 characters. When cross-posting these Tweets to Facebook, post the full message from Twitlonger.com instead of the shortened message with the URL to the full message.

        • Support rate-limitng of posts to x per hour/day

          I tweet way more often than I should be posting status updates to Facebook, and I hate adding a #nfb tag to things. If I tweet more than once per hour, just take the first one.

            This was in the original plan, but we decided to leave it out to start. In my experience with the TweetFace defaults (i.e. no @replies and tweets containing links become Facebook wall posts not status updates), I find that the actual frequency of the Facebook status updates is a lot lower than you would expect.

            We’re totally open to adding this if a lot of people request it. But to start, we wanted to keep things as simple as possible.
