TwitterGram functionality baked into FlickrFan

Monday, March 24, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I've been meaning to do this for some time... Permalink to this paragraph

Just released a new feature in FlickrFan that allows it to do for pictures what TwitterGram does.  Permalink to this paragraph

You can set it up to check for new pics in your Flickr account and when it spots one, automatically post it to Twitter. Permalink to this paragraph

You can set the interval, so it can check every minute if you like, for virtually instant publishing. I like to use this to take pics on my walks and share them with my Twitter friends while I'm still out and about. GIves me a sense that the Twittersphere is on the walk with me.  Permalink to this paragraph

Yes, I know I need to make this work with Pownce too. And other instant social networks like Jaiku and others. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

If you want to try it out and have FlickrFan running, follow the instructions here. There's also a place to comment and ask questions.  Permalink to this paragraph
