Micro-blogging and mega-blogging platforms have become more symbiotic. WordPress.com has enabled posting to and reading of WordPress.com blogs via the Twitter API. This means any Twitter app that allows you to set a custom API URL can be used to either post updates to your WordPress.com blog, or to read updates from blogs you’ve subscribed to. Tweetie 2, an iPhone and desktop Twitter client, will be one of the first third party apps to implement this. “To get started, launch Tweetie 2 and click the “Accounts” button. Then press the “+” button to add your WordPress.com account. Enter your WordPress.com username and password, and click on the gear icon under the password field, and then add your account, once verified you can start posting to your WordPress.com blog from Tweetie 2. You can write a status update and post to your WordPress.com blog and also have it displayed in the blog reading view. You can also enable geotagging to show the location of your status update,” announced Matt.
