All-in-1 @tweetitow

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.

How Posterous Autopost Works

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:

/via posterous

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:

/via twitter

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 message


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.

Tweet Update via Posterous via @tweetitow

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.

Automatically Created Posterous Page

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.

Posterous Sign-Up Page

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.

Posterous Sign-Up Page

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. 

Posterous Manage Page

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.

Different Social Networking, Blogging, Video and other Platforms you can autopost to

If you have questions, please post it to @tweetitow’s getsatisfaction page.

    • Rose Buenconsejo / Aug 11 2010 12:55 pm

      hi, alex. that’s really kind of a big glitch on our end. sorry, we havent find much time to investigate on it if it’s something on our end or posterous. so we need to trace the root of the problem. =(

      FYI to others: this happens when you connect then disconnect and connect again ur twitter app to posterous. it happens to me too =(

    • Rose Buenconsejo / Nov 2 2010 8:35 pm

      reply to u via twitter =)

  19. Justice / Nov 10 2010 8:08 pm

    /via posterous doesn’t work for me.

    • Rose Buenconsejo / Nov 11 2010 10:20 am

      have u tried just pre-fixing it with ‘p’ to post to posterous.
      anyhoo, we’ll double check on this.

  20. nielz / Nov 17 2010 9:41 am

    bakit po ayaw ma post nung galing sa twitter papunta sa blog?
    ung mga twitter posts ko, dito napupunta-> pero sa walang nalalagay na post. hindi rin natra transfer sa blog ko. do you think it’s posterous who’s having problems? or i just didn’t get it right? thanks po..

    • nielz / Nov 17 2010 9:42 am po pala.. hindi rabd..

      • Rose Buenconsejo / Nov 17 2010 12:51 pm

        hi, nielz. i think na claim mo na ang u need to prefix ur tweets with ‘p’ or swtich to posterous mode by texting /via posterous so that your updates will also be posted to posterous.

        i hope this helps. thjanks

  21. Tiffany Chua / Nov 19 2010 9:17 pm

    Hi. What if I already have a Posterous account? How can I link it to my tweetitow account? If there’s no way to do that, I’ll just follow the steps in this post. Thank you :)

    • Tiffany Chua / Nov 19 2010 9:24 pm

      Oh wait. Stupid question. If I did the instructions on this blog entry, I can just link the site you guys made for my account to my current posterous account. Lol. Sorry bout that. I’ll try.

      • Rose Buenconsejo / Nov 20 2010 4:46 pm
