Exploring microblogging directly from WordPress. I’ve found this style of blogging really useful when working through a problem; a worklog/devlog of sorts so I can retrace my steps (those not covered by git commits).
This looks promising: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-to-twitter/
For live blogging I also found this free (open source) project.
My only fear with introducing yet another 3rd party service is over-all reliability.
