How to enable shortened bit.ly urls in Tweetie on the Iphone.

If like me you are a new user of Tweetie for the Iphone then you may have an issue getting the shortened urls working for bit.ly. Basically when you type a Tweet you can add a url and then press the little character count box above the on screen keyboard to ‘Shrink URLS’, this makes the url shrink & your tweet shorter and neater.

Instructions:

  1. Goto http://bit.ly and register
  2. Goto Your Account (top right of bit.ly page)
  3. Copy the API key
  4. Goto Tweetie on your Iphone, Accounts, Settings, Services
  5. Scroll to the bottom API Keys
  6. Add in your Tweetie Login and paste your API key.
  7. Now add a new Tweet with a url press the little character count box above the on screen keyboard to Shrink URLS
  8. You should now have a url starting http://bit.ly/

All done 🙂
