How to add the Twitter handle of the site:

One of the great advantages of ContentBreeze is that it helps you network with  different  sites and people from your niche.  One great way of doing this is by mentioning their Twitter account in each tweet.  ContentBreeze can automatically place the site’s Twitter handle in every news it tweets out.

To do this, you need to add the Twitter handles of all your news sites.  Go to the menu “List webs”, edit each site, and add the Twitter handle for each one of them.  The Twitter handle field is in the right column.
