What's new in Nurph?

@LucyACarson is a literary agent living in NYC. @LucyACarson stopped by #LitChat last week as a guest speaker during their Literary Agent Week:

Unfortunately a bug cropped up for #LitChat this week, whereby our tweet streaming process would show duplicate tweets in the Channel timeline. But this pesky bug was fixed shortly after the first sighting!

@LitChat thanks for bearing with that one - luckily we managed to fix it early on in the ongoing #LitChat chat session.

@soniawrite was looking for a tool for hashtag chats: 

#MomBizMondays took their Nurph Channel for a spin again this week: 

Thanks @shelaghcummins @mombizcoach!

Bug Fixes:

  • Prevent duplicate tweets from rendering in the timeline (thanks for spotting that, @GLHancock & @LitChat!)
  • Fixed the reverse ordering of "recent-tweets" when visiting an unoccupied Channel.
  • Prevent quick-fire "entered/left" messages, e.g. when you open the same channel in more than one browser tab.
  • I (@Nurph) now respond quicker to your @replies thanks to a new messaging queue (a.k.a 'MQ').
  • The @Reply button would intermittently fail to set the "in reply to". Fixed! 

New Features:

  • 'Recent Tweets' are loaded when visiting any Nurph Channel! I.e. see a collection of the hashtag tweets that were posted before you joined the Channel.
  • A new 'activity indicator' shows you when recent tweets are being fetched.
  • An improved tweet publishing queue publishes your tweets to Twitter much quicker than before (and there's even more speed improvements on the way).

Until Next Time:

Got a question, feedback, or just want to learn more about Nurph.com and how you can use it for hashtag chats? Stop by and chat with us during our brand new #Nurph chat session! We're holding the first #Nurph chat today at 17:00 GMT. See you on http://Nurph.com/Nurph

Have a great weekend everyone.



p.s. Don't forget the #hashtag...
