Hi. I've just upgraded my blog to 2.0. The update went pretty smooth I have to say. Thank you for your continued efforts with this project.
One thing I did however was customize the Twitter widget (I had done this in 1.6 already), and I thought maybe it would be worth considering this change for the main trunk too.
Issue: the Twitter widget filters any tweets that contain the "@" sign. This is considerably different from normal Twitter behavior where only those tweets of a person you follow are filtered that
start with an "@" (and are targeted at a person you do not follow, but that's a different story). This means that the Twitter widget misses e.g. retweets, tweets you send with /cc, and tweets you deliberately wanted to make available to your
followers by not letting them begin with "@" (e.g. a common way to do this is to let it start with ". @" or similar, or mention the targeted account at the end etc.).
Solution: Ever since 1.6 I had changed the responsible part in the BindFeed method of the widget.ascx.cs to something like:
// reversed order:
// first cut off the user handle (and trim), then check for "@"
var start = title.IndexOf(":") + 1;
title = title.Substring(start).Trim();
// check if the tweet STARTS WITH @ (not contains)
