Sending Twitter posts to Automatically

If you have both a Twitter and account you may want to update one with the other auotmatically. If you are mainly an user, that’s straightforward as you just need to Settings -> Twitter and make sure “Automatically send my notices to Twitter.” is checked. If you are mainly a twitter user and want to update your timeline automatically it’s not so trivial.

I found some existing solutions based on and using Twitter RSS feed with Yahoo pipes, but both did not work for me:

  • Twitterfeed could not authenticate with If I clicked on Test StatusNet Authentication it would try to authenticate forever without success as shown on the screenshot below
    Twitterfeed Authentication Timeout
  • would return the error “Sorry. We weren’t able to save your destination at this time” when trying to connect to StatusNet with credentials.

Finally, I found another way with and still using Yahoo pipes:

  1. Sign into
  2. In Service/Tools select “RSS Feeds”
  3. Set the feed URL to be
  4. Make sure to add your  account in Social Networks and that posting is enabled.

That’s it! Your tweets should now be updated in real-time in

N.B: You could also use your Twitter RSS Feed directly, but the reason for using Yahoo Pipes is to remove your twitter username which is prefixed in front of all your tweets.
