connecting to twitter: you can easily sync your avalantern ellipses with twitter! in settings/twitter, authorize with twitter, and set your preferences. because of the authorization method (known as oauth), avalantern will never see your password, and you can cancel the authorization any time via twitter.com!
tidbits: you can post little factoids about yourself in your profile. your tidbits are shown randomly every time someone views the page, so be sure to post a lot of them!

related posts: be sure to tag your posts! tagging your posts will not only give viewers a good idea of what it's about before they read it, but it will also make "related posts" more accurate. this way, someone reading your last post about pixar's new movie, tagged with pixar, will see a suggestion to read your post from last year about wall-e!
