MILWAUKEE - It's nothing new for a media company to incorporate Twitter feeds into a Web site, but OnMilwaukee.com has done something completely different with its new and innovative OnMilwaukee.com Live feed on its home page.
OnMilwaukee.com Live is a "what's happening now" look at everything and everybody at the Milwaukee-based online magazine. It incorporates Tweets from staff reporters, featured events from the OnMilwaukee.com event calendar, Talkbacks from readers, promotional messages, contests, top clicks and even links to photos, movie and TV listings -- as well as every story, blog, podcast, video and brief that runs on OnMilwaukee.com.

"Our application is different because it pulls content back onto our homepage, offering a totally unique way to see everything live flowing through our Web site."
OnMilwaukee.com also announced readership for July 2010 was up 37.49 percent over July 2009.
Other site enhancements include:
- A new, personality-driven layout for blogs.
