In 2009, Twitter will become much more tightly integrated with the rest of the blog in a variety of ways – watch out for tweetbacks and tweetstats to make their debut, and tweet comments to TwitterRolls to start appearing on blogs.
Here are 10 ways Twitter will impact blogs this year.
4. Tweets move out of the sidebar
5. Tweet comments
6. BlogTweet feeds
7. Blog comment form changes
8. New sidebar widgets
10. Blog design influenced by Twitter themes
While many bloggers change their Twitter theme to match their blog’s themes as closely as possible, this will also work in reverse. Influenced by Twitter’s design, bloggers will use more background images on their blogs and use the limitations of theming their Twitter page to influence how they design their blog. Expect to see more blog headers rotated ninety degrees anti-clockwise and more blog sidebars on the right hand side.
