Ready for a few testers
Thursday, August 9, 2007 by Dave Winer.
If you want to test the new Flickr-to-Twitter page on twittergram.com, send me a private message.
Update #1: Okay, I'm going to try to quickly add support for special tags, so that not every Flickr picture you upload ends up in your Twitter stream. This was the other Fred Wilson request, and other people are asking for it. Obviously it needs to be in there. First I have to figure out how Flickr adds them to the RSS feed.
Update #2: The tag is there in the feed. But I gotta editorialize. Why did they invent their own category element instead of using the RSS 2.0 category element? Their new element appears to work exactly like the one they NIH'd. They didn't follow Postel's very good law there at Yahoo. No matter. I'm going to use it anyway. End of editorial.
