killed my Google Reader


We recently created a account for LosTechies.  What this service does is query your RSS feed and whenever a new post is created, it will tweet the blog entry information.  I’m back on twitter and read it religiously.  The “real-time” information is priceless.  Being notified about posts is awesome.  Heck, it even notifies me when one of the other LosTechies members posts.

This is a call out to all bloggers that use twitter.  Create a account and you no longer have to announce your posts manually and it will help all your followers read your ideas that exceed 140 characters.

    Here’s my issue with it. WTF do they need my twitter account? Giving them my username and password doesn’t really cut it with me.

  2. @John Smith
    How else would twitterfeed make a tweet to twitter? If you are that scared, create a dummy twitter account, follow it and make an announcement on yours to tell people to follow it.

    Paranoid much? Can’t even comment with your real name.
