I use Ian Fenn's MT-Twitter plug-in to tweet whenever I post an new entry and it works great. However in tweeting a post, I'd like the ability to include some additional query parameters on the base URL for the post. The main reason is so that I can check how well my Tweets perform at driving traffic to my site in whatever web analytics tool I use.
For example... Instead creating a tinyURL for the following post URL:
I'd like to append some extra bits (these would be the same for all posts) like so:
This would allow me to track, using Google Analytics in this case, the twitter referrals as a campaign. Essentially all this would need is an option box to allow me to enter my custom query parameter extras in the plug-in setting screen so that they could be added before the URL is made into a TinyURL.
Does anyone know, is this something that is easy to do with the plug-in (i.e. a local tweak I can make) or does anyone have other suggestions on how this could be accomplished?
