How to Send FeedBurner Feeds to Twitter using Google Short URL?
Google’s short URL (goo.gl) and FeedBurner’s social feature now allow blog publishers to update updates to Twitter quickly and automatically without using external service.
TwitterFeed, if you have not seen it before, it is an interesting service that can automatically publish your RSS feed to your Twitter account. It helps because the moment you write something new on your blog, a “tweet” is posted on your behalf, informing all your Twitter followers about new content.
Today Google has introduced a new socialite feature inside FeedBurner, which will allow blog publishers like you to quickly and automatically push updates to Twitter without using the third service.
All you have to do is log in to your FeedBurner account and select the feed that you want to push on Twitter. Associate your Twitter account with this feed (it uses oAuth), add some prefixes and activate the service.
A FeedBurner feed can be posted at only one Twitter account at a time, but if you have to publish a single feed on several Twitter accounts, then make a copy of that feed within the feed and repeat the process. Here is a sample tweet of FeedBurner using Google Short URL:
Currently, you can integrate FeedBurner feeds with only Twitter accounts, but by going ahead, I’m sure Google will incorporate other social services into loops and especially Facebook (and perhaps Orkut).
Google already offers a free URL short service for Google Apps users – this is called Google Short Link – but now they can create a public launch with goo.gl. lovely name!
