@tweetitow & Posterous – Update your Plurk, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Blogging Sites via SMS

Aside from twitter and facebook, you can now update your plurk, jaiku, friendfeed, tumblr, wordpress, livejournal, blogspot and other social networking and blogging platform via SMS/text send to @tweetitow gateway. @tweetitow made this possible by connecting with Posterous. Posterous has this feature called ‘autopost everywhere.’ You can add different social networking and blogging sites to its ‘autopost everywhere’ list.

How Posterous Autopost Works

Following is the complete list of online sites which Posterous can ‘autopost’ to:

* Twitter
* plurk
* facebook
* facebook pages
* jaiku
* friendfeed
* linkedin
* identica
* blogger
* tumblr
* typepad
* wordpress
* movable typepad
* livejournal
* shopify
* xanga
* drupal
* flickr
* picasa
* YouTube
* vimeo
* viddler
* blip.tv
* scribd
* delicious

If you were able to set-up all these sites for ‘autopost’ in your posterous, then you can update them all with just 1 SMS/text to @tweetitow’s gateway.

To be able to do this, you need to be a registered user of @tweetitow. You can check here on how to register to @tweetitow. If you are a @tweetitow registered user already, you can update posterous by prefixing your message with letter ‘p.’

For example:
p I love posterous and @tweetitow.

Or, you can send the following command key to the gateway:

/via posterous

Your account wil be switched to posterous mode. You no longer need to to prefix your message with ‘p.’ All your updates send to @tweetitow will automatically be posted to posterous.

Please check @tweetitow’s ‘All-in-1 @tweetitow’ page for a more detailed instruction.

Aside from the ‘autopost’ feature of Posterous, there are a lot of things you can do with it. But one of the features which I like about posterous is it provides you with a simple built-in ‘Analytics feature. This can provide you with an idea of how many people click the link attached to your post to view your posterous page. You can see how ‘popular’ you are. We all love ‘attention.’ Whoever does not is not human. If you want more detailed high-end analytics, Posterous build their system that it is easy for you to add google analytics to it.

Below is an example of how their built-in Analytics feature work, this tweet gets viewed 50 times. (You can also see the analytics stats in the ‘Manage’ page of your posterous account.) I’m not really sure if it is accurate but then I do not really care. Though, I do not advise you to get hooked with the numbers of hits. Because at the end of the day, they are just figures, what matters most is if you are pleased/satisfied with what you have done.

Posterous Built-in Analytics

For me, using posterous is a chance for us to bring our tweeting hobby/addiction to another level. My point is that not all of us have the ‘like/talent/skill’ to blog or create a post with more than 140 characters. But then tweeting is a start, and with posterous, this is where you can try to experiment to share that is more than 140 characters. Well, it does not necessarily need to be characters though.

How to use @tweetitow? (2-Way SMS-Based Twitter Update)

Please go to http://tweetitow.com for a more updated information.

@tweetitow is a 2-way SMS-based twitter application, which is the true essence of Twitter. You can do 2 things with @tweetitow — 1. send twitter upates and 2. receive twitter updates straight from your mobile phone. It has 3 gateway numbers for Globe, Smart, and Sun users.

(NOTE: RECEIVE UPDATES IS NO LONGER PUBLICLY AVAILABLE.)

To get started, following are steps:

1. Create an account in twitter. Remember your correct log-in IDs – username and password.

2. Once you have have a twitter account, you can now register to @tweetitow.  To register, text the following from your mobile phone:

Reg username password

Example:

reg maricel diamonstar

Then, send to any of the following numbers:

SMS.Gateway #s

Globe/TM:0915-692-4349 & 0927-404-1751;

Smart/TNT:0918-419-4904;

Sun:09233073270

3. You can receive confirmation via text and mention in your twitter timeline.

Once you are done with these 3 steps, you can then start texting or sending as SMS your tweets. You can compose your tweet just like how you text your friends.

To mention another twitter user in your tweet, simply insert the username like this: Tomorrow I will marry @britneyspears.

To send a direct message (DM) to another twitter user, simply put a ‘d’ at the start followed by the username you want to send the DM.

You can do it like this: d @username this is a secret message.

EASY.

Now to receive your mentions and direct messages or other users’ twitter updates, you need to go online after you register to @tweetitow. To start receiving updates, following are steps:

1. Send /on to any gateway numbers to go online. Once you are online, you can then receive your DMs and mentions.

2. To receive other users updates, send the command key in this format: /follow @user1 @user2 @user3

You can follow up to 8 users. To stop following a user, send: /leave @user

3. To go offline, send: /off

Please note that once you go online again, you need to follow again the users. If you want to maintain the people you follow but you want to stop receiving updates for the meantime, then use send: /hold

Following are complete list of command keys you can use regarding receiving updates:
/on -> To go online and start receiving updates — mentions and DMs.
/off
-> To go offline. This means you will stop receiving updates.
/credits -> To check how many credits you still have.
/follow @user1 @user2 @user3 up to 8 users -> To start receiving updates from the user you follow. At the start, you will only receive mentions and DMs updates. If you want to receive tweet updates from a particular twitter user, you need to activate receiving updates from them. Example format, /follow @tweetitow.
/leave @user -> To stop receiving updates from a particular activated user.
/followstats -> To get a list of the twitter users you activated to receive updates from your phone.
/hold -> Hold sms updates. Similar to the command /off except that the settings and user you activate to receive updates from the last session are keep.
/resume -> To resume your session, and receive updates again from your phone.
/whoami
-> To verify what twitter account you registered to T2.
/give @user -> To give another @tweetitow registered user some of your credits. Giving is sharing is loving.
/whatsnew -> To retrieve the 5 recent updates (from the last 24 hours) from any of the people you follow (including those you did not turn on to receive updates from your phone). To receive another 5 recent updates, simply send /whatsnew again — the 5 older tweet updates will be sent to your phone.
/whatsnew @user -> To retrieve the 5 recent updates of a user from the last 24 hours.

Send the command key to any of the gateway numbers for execution.

For a more detailed steps and information, please check the help page of tweetitow.com. If you need more help, please message @owrange or @tweetitow.

Happy tweeting with @tweetitow!
