Auto-feed Pligg to Twitter
So I have been on this Twitter kick lately, sorry. But, let’s face it, Twitter is where the action is. So let’s looks at how to have the built-in RSS feature work for you.
In this post, I will show you how to have your RSS feed automatically post to Twitter at a time interval you set.
For this to happen, you will need to visit and sign-up at TwitterFeed. Let’s begin.
Add a feed to your Twitter account:
Allow TwitterFeed to access your Twitter account:
Enter a feed name and RSS feed address:
Click “Test RSS Feed”, you should get this:
Now, click on Advanced:
In here you will want the following settings:
- Update Frequency – make this want you want, don’t Tweet too often though
- Post Content – make this title only
- Check “Post Link” and determine your URL shortener service
- Post Sorting – change to GUID and uncheck “Feed is sorted”
- For the remaining settings, this is up to you, I have these blank.
Your feed is now setup:
Depending on the URL shortening service you provided, you will be asked for API login details, for example Bit.ly will provide you with this. When you select this service you will be presented with 2 fields asking for this info which is used for analytics only.
Here’s how Bit.ly shows yours analytics:
This will simply take posts from your published RSS so you will not be posting spam. The address that the clicker will be sent to will be the story page. For this reason, you will want to be careful how many you post and you will also want to post general Tweets in between to not be labeled a SPAMMER or get your “Followers” upset with you.
Will you use this method?
