Generate title from post excerpt if no title is specified

I still have not given up hope that I will one day be able to use Ghost for both, writing regular articles and posting short status updates / micro posts :slight_smile:. With the routing and channels features I can write a theme that divides the content, displays it correctly and uses the UUID to build the URL etc. But unfortunately every post without a title will be displayed as “(Untitled)” in the admin view – which does not make it easy to distinguish them.

If the editor would take an excerpt from the post, lets say the first 3 or 4 words, sanitise the output and create a title and a slug, Ghost could immediately be used for microblogging.

I tried to customise the editor myself, to see if I could add the functionality, but I am not knowledgeable enough in NodeJS/Javascript and the code structure to do so at the moment.
