    We want to give our writers a way to provide specific @username entries for each of their posts and then have those included as part of the autopost.

    We used the Excerpt field for this as a test and, while it worked for SNAP/Twitter to compose PERFECT, topic-specific tweets, we forgot that the Excerpt showed up on our front page. Thus each post on the front page simply showed part of the tweet. Oops.

    Is there a better what to do this? Right now our Twitter Message Text Format is this:

    %TITLE% review %SURL% %EXCERPT%

    Just dropping the %EXCERPT% results in completely useless tweets for us. As I noted elsewhere, we do movie reviews and referencing the stars, the directors, the official film handle, etc., all are essential to our reach.

    Thanks.

    Please use custom fields. They are designed specifically for that reason.
