A flurry of features for feed readersIt's a lesser version of what I wanted Byline to do. It's interesting, but, darn it, they got it wrong! I want a single button that would let me write a comment for sharing in Google Reader, and have that comment (length limited) go to Twitter. Also there's no option to send a post to multiple sites at the same time.
We've made it easier to share posts you like to Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, and more, with our new 'Send to' feature...
Just head over to the settings page, and enable the services you want to use.... you can create your own 'Send to' link with a URL template...
To share an item on one of your sites, simply click the 'Send to' button and choose your service. If you're into keyboard shortcuts, 'shift-t' will do the same.

We can now tweet from Google Reader
When you click the Twitter link Google Reader opens Twitter with a URL shortened link to the post ..
You can also send to Blogger, but it sends the entire page to the editor. I don't know if I'll find it very useful for blogging.
Overall, it's a step in the right direction, but only a smallish step.
Update 4/25/10: This is still not a part of the mobile reader UI. I think it's a dead end.
