CFIF Launches CFIF Tweet Post: New Website Feature
Posted by CFIF Staff Print

For conservatives and libertarians who want their news and commentary fast (really fast), comprehensive and unfiltered, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) has launched a timely new feature:  CFIF Tweet Post.

CFIF Tweet Post combines in one direct, real-time forum the twitter feeds and accompanying feature links of more than 100 of the nation’s top commentators and journalists, live and unedited, as they are tweeted.

Readers do not have to register, or use up a precious password.  Readers do not have to join Twitter.  Readers do not have to “follow” writers (although most would be honored if you do).

Simply access CFIF Tweet Post by clicking here.  Or, go to www.cfif.org, click the CFIF Tweet Post Button on our Homepage and you will be automatically transported to an up-to-the-minute, easy-to-read page with user-friendly type, which seamlessly and automatically refreshes with each new feed.

Scan for breaking news, biting commentary, topical humor, occasional verbal fisticuffs and immediate access to every day’s most important stories, as they develop.

Please note that CFIF has carefully chosen, for their relevance and popularity, the numerous writers and thinkers who are featured. The work is solely that of the named Tweeters, unedited and unvarnished, and should not be attributed to CFIF.

Through weeks of exhaustive internal beta testing, CFIF Tweet Post has worked flawlessly.  We simply don’t know what critical volume will mean, but be assured that we are constantly monitoring, and glitches will be corrected AS SOON AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

We love this new thing just as much as we know our readers will. Try It Now!
