Flickr Twitter Beta: Flickr Testing Twitter Integration Through Email Uploads

with one comment

flickrThere’s a lot of Twitter image-sharing services out there right now — like Twitpic and the newly launched TweetPhoto. But if you are a regular user of Flickr as well as Twitter, you might like this new update to Flickr. Flickr has launched a new update called Flickr Twitter Beta which lets you tweet your photo uploads to Twitter via email uploads. Here are the quick steps on how to do it:

Info for setting up your Flickr Twitter

Step 1: www.flickr.com/account/blogs/add/twitter

You’ll need to authorize your account. Click on the “Head over to Twitter now” link.

Step 2: Click on the “Allow” link.

Step 3: You’ll be redirected back to Flickr. Open up your address book on your mobile device and add your unique email+Twitter address. (This is just your existing upload by email address with “2twitter” added.)

Step 4: Have at it. When you upload via email, the subject line will be taken as your Twitter tweet, and a special Flickr-y short URL to the photo will be appended.

Here’s an example from Kellan’s Twitter account of what a post looks like:

twitter.com/kellan/status/2062931580

Please note: Because we add the Flickr URL, you should be thinking in 116 characters.

Step 5: Feedback, baby! We wants it.

For now, only email uploads is supported, and we hope to see direct upload integrated soon. Other than that, this service is pretty convenient for mobile uploads of photos to Flick-Twitter.
