What we need to do before you start using Tweecious is set it up. The setup procedure is very simple 2-step process:
- we will figure out your Twitter username by loading up Twitter and reading your username value,
- we will do the same with delicious.
Don't worry, we don't need your password and will never try to get it or ask for it. You should never have to enter your password for a service on other services - read more about the password anti-pattern.
You don't have to do anything to use Tweecious. It will automatically run from time to time1, get your tweets, search them for links and post the links to delicious. If it encounters any problems it will alert you with a small banner on the top of the screen.
Tweecious uses two other services besides Twitter and delicious. We use longurl.org to expand the shortened links and Zemanta to get the tags for a link. As these two are experimental, you can turn them off in the preferences.
You can change all the settings in preferences. As Tweecious doesn't have its own interface you can access its preferences via delicious - when you visit the delicious website you will see a Tweecious link in the top navigation next to "settings".
The settings that you can modify:
- delicious account to post the bookmarks to
- the interval at which to check for new tweets
- usage of longurl.org
- usage of Zemanta and the API key to use2
