twitter21The Lessnau Lounge brings to the table two great WordPress plugins – Twitterdoodle and RSSdoodle.

Twitterdoodle allows you to create mashup posts (or roundups) of tweets about a specific topic being talked about on Twitter. For example, if you want to make a post about Apple iPods or your favorite tv show, Twitterdoodle has some great features, such as an option to make posts go automatically to your category archives and not your blog’s front page.

RSSdoodle works the same way, except it compiles lists of blog posts from around the web.
