This plugin provides PR companies and users wanting to pitch, a means to give an "elevator" pitch in 140 characters or less.
WP-TwitterPitch is all about getting the pitch delivered to you in the form you want to get it delivered - in other words in Twitter format. If you're like me, then your Twitter direct message box is a lot like your email inbox. Personally, I don't want to get pitches from PR companies in certain email inboxes. For whatever reason, I may not check them or they are personal, etc.
Twitter, however, provides the ultimate quick-messaging system. This plugin provides a template tag that you can drop anywhere in your theme. Clicking the link provides lightbox-like functionality for a "pitch form". Using the form does not require a Twitter account (but does require that you have a secondary Twitter account you can use for this purpose, since you can't send Direct Messages to yourself via Twitter). Note: Your WP-TwitterPitch Twitter account must follow the account that is being pitched and vica versa. This is a one-off action (hopefully, depending on Twitter) and only needs to be done when setting up WP-TwitterPitch.
Messages sent from the form are DMmed to the account getting the pitch and the form is limited to 140 characters or less. The beauty of linguistic efficiency.
