The point of Twitter is to have a conversation, but it also nice to send out useful information to your followers – perhaps links of interest or a link when you post to your blog. Twitterfeed allows you to use RSS feeds to automatically send links to your Twitter account. Just add the RSS feed from your blog to Twitterfeed and you will automatically tweet the blog title with a link whenever you add a new post.
Once you have an account you can add any RSS feed and tell Twitterfeed how often you want it to post items from your feed (every 30m, every hour, etc) and how many items to post (1-5). Twitterfeed will only post new items, so don’t worry about posting redundant content. Once you add a feed it may take a few minutes for Twitterfeed to pick it up.
Twitterfeed can also be used to post directly to identi.ca and custom laconica installations. Using Twitterfeed in conjunction with Ping.fm or HelloTxt you can also post to any sites those services support.
Here at Sazbean, we use Twitterfeed to automatically tweet our blog posts and links we add to delicious.
If you use Twitterfeed, we’d love to hear how in the comments.
