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