I've been a Flickr addict for awhile. I have over 5k pictures on flickr. And those are just the ones that I've uploaded.
Uploading to flickr is a piece of cake with a cameraphone. Email the photo right from the phone and presto. Everything works just fine.
I always wanted to sync up my twitter updates with my flickr activity. This twitter in May is a classic twitter update from me.
Sometimes I would add the url, sometimes I wouldn't. Flickr and Twitter were living parallel lives in the past. And if they connected up, it was awkward and clunky at best.
But thanks to Dave Winer, I'm now using the coolest solution. Dave has been blogging his progress with his Flickr-to-Twitter creation. This is my favorite post of his on the subject.
I simply take a photo and email it to Flickr from my iPhone or Curve to Flickr. Dave's software grabs it and updates my twitter feed with the name of the photo and a link to it. The software evens converts it to tinyurl.
I've got it set up so it grabs pix from my phone (vs all the photos I upload to flickr). Now when I upload a photo to flickr from phone, my twitter update looks like this. And it just works.
So sweet. Thanks Dave.
