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.
Following is the complete list of online sites which Posterous can ‘autopost’ to:
* facebook pages
* movable typepad
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.’
p I love posterous and @tweetitow.
Or, you can send the following command key to the gateway:
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.
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.
