How to publish your WordPress posts to Twitter without using a WordPress plugin or Twitterfeed15January 7th, 2010Blogging
I didn’t really get that last part, highlighted above, and didn’t really care. You see, I have my own URL shortening Service, have accounts created and obtaining API for extended statistics at both http://Bit.ly and http://cli.gs sites, have preview feature set-up for any http://tinyURL.com, and my existing sites already have a wide variety of URL shortening services available from plugins activated such as Digg Digg and the like.
HAVE YOU BEEN TO YOUR FEEDBURNER RECENTLY?
I remember setting up a bunch of new blogs back in early October 2009 and noticed that there is no more “PING” series of sites … because the “Pingshot” service just notifies all interested services when my feed changes. Before, I had to select a standard set, plus 5 additional ones and who the heck know which ones were better or not better. Honestly .. I’d rather not know! 😀
* BUT – WHAT IS THIS NEW TAB? “SOCIALIZE” ?
There’s a new tab called “Socialize” that lets you publish to your twitter account – directly from your Feedburner account. You have to first give google authorization (OAuth”) to your twitter account and if you are familiar with http://twitterfeed.com .. the options are pretty similar. Please see the image below and, of course, check out your own Feedburner account!
By the way .. I use the
Feedburner Feedsmith pluginFeedburner Feedsmith Plugin on all my blogs and although I’m not really sure if I need it or not have been using the Full Text Feed plugin that prevents WordPress 2.1+ from adding a “more” link to my website’s feed. So far it ‘ain’t broke my wordpress upgrades to newer versions, so I haven’t stopped using both together.
I AM GIVING THIS A TRYOUT
Currently, I have 93 feeds with my Twitterfeed account .. but, on my new SportsHEN blog (Which will be a front for my five new Olympic Winter Sports Blogs 2010) I have set my feedburner to be submitting my published posts to my newly created http://twitter.com/SportsHEN account.
This should be interesting to see how this works!

The link to the Feedsmith plugin is broken. I noticed a while back that Feedburner took the plugin down for some strange reason. I’m guessing this one would do the trick too.
Of course I also use the Headway theme on a lot of projects these days and it has feed redirection built in so there’s no need for the plugin with it. 🙂

I immediately adopted this idea once it was out, very prompt and easy. Of course, I need to turn off some integration plugins to avoid duplicates. 🙂 Yeah, think we’ll be having more of those days whenever a new integration service is up — turn on, off, on, off…

I was looking for a solution to publish tweets from my posts to different accounts according the category of the post. After 3 days lokking for a solution you save my life.
The feedburner socialize tool does exactly what I need, without plugins and configurations or hardcode.
