Using more than one nanoformat in the same post

If you want to use more than one nanoformat in the same twit. You have to use at the end of the twit.


Don't use more than one nanoformat of the same type in the same twit

Is not a good idea use the same type nanoformat in the same twit. Twits can be a good unit to convert the information given in a twit into other formats for that reason only the things that have meaning together are interesting. If you want to explain more than one thing you should use an other twit to do that.
