You can now update Posterous via @tweetitow. Posterous can let you autopost to different social network and blogging platforms — plurk, tumblr, wordpress, livejournal to name a few. Check posterou’s website to get a complete list of websites they supported.
If you are already a registered @tweetitow user, you can start updating via posterous right away by texting any of the following to @tweetitow gateway:
By texting /via posterous to any of the @tweetitow gateway number, you switch your @tweetitow account to POSTEROUS MODE. It means all your updates will go through posterous. It will then be posterous who will ‘autopost’ your update to twitter, and other sites you set-up for ‘autoposting.’ To stop updating via posterous, simply text to the gateway the following:
After texting /via twitter, all the updates you will send to @tweetitow gateway will be directly posted to your twitter timeline.
If you do not want to switch to POSTEROUS MODE, you just want to select the updates you want to be posted on posterous, then simply prefix your message with letter ‘p.’ You can selectively update your posterous by sending your message in this format:
p i love @tweetitow!
You will notice that if you switch to POSTEROUS MODE or prefix your message with ‘p,’ your twitter timeline will reflect ‘from Posterous’ instead of the usual ‘from API.’ Also, there is a link at the end of your tweet that will redirect you to that update’s posterous page.
Now that I am able to update via Posterous. What should I do next? How can I set Posterous to autopost to my Plurk, facebook, tumblr, wordpress, and other social networking and blogging platforms?
If you already have a posterous account and you know how to use it, most likely you know what to do next.
But if you do not have a posterous account yet, simply click the posterous link attached at the end of your tweet update.
You will be redirected to a posterous page automatically created for you when you click the attached link. The posterous page will usually be named after your twitter username. Click the ‘Claim this site’ button on right side of the page if you want to manage and set-up this posterous site.
Clicking the ‘Claim this site’ button will lead you to the Sign-up page. There are 2 ways to sign up for a posterous account, you can sign-up via your facebook account, or via creating a posterous account.
Fill out the following fields with the appropriate information to sign up for an account. This is a step for you to take in claiming the automatically created posterous page.
TIP: You can use your twitter username for your posterous site so it is easy for you to remember our posterous website url.
After you are done with the ‘Sign up for an account’ page, you can now access the Manage page. In this page, click on ‘Add a service’ button or ‘Autopost’ to add social networking sites and blog sites you want your updates to be crossposted to.
Simply click on the website you wish to include in your ‘autopost’ list. Once a ‘service’ is added to ‘autopost’ list, it will be updated every time you send/post a message to posterous.
If you have questions, please post it to @tweetitow’s getsatisfaction page.
