Suppose that every time you posted an article or page to your website the system would automatically generate a Tweet to inform your followers?
A year or so ago I had this challenge for a Drupal 7 website I was working on, where the client is regularly adding book reviews to her site and needed to keep her followers informed - www.catherinelarner.com
Maybe there are several ways to do this but after a bit of investigation I settled on using the Rules and Twitter modules, together with the necessary OAuth module for Twitter. Rules is complex but provides great flexibility for controlling exactly what is tweeted and when.
So one of my first thoughts on starting with Backdrop CMS was how to do the same thing, and my need to get these modules ported to Backdrop. The good news is that I now have working ports of these three modules. Maybe we will uncover a few more problems as we begin to use them in earnest. Maybe the ports are a bit inelegant - Rules makes extensive use of entities and I expect that a proper Backdrop version would be rather different and a lot tidier.
I gratefully acknowledge the expert and friendly help of Nathan Haug, co-founder of Backdrop CMS, in promptly answering my questions and thereby helping me achieve this goal.
What next? With Drupal I usually start with Zen as a base theme. I wonder if ......?
