Twitter2Press

What is Twitter2Press ?


Have you ever noticed that the pictures you send along with your tweets ends on public images hosting services ? These hosting services put ads around your content, and can make traffic (and money) with YOUR pictures.
Twitter2Press is a little plugin that'll transform your Wordpress in a image hosting service. So, your images will still be your property, and the generated traffic will be yours.

This plugin will communicate with the wonderful Twitter client for iPhone Tweetie, very easily.
Once your picture has been uploaded, the plugin will grab the content of the associated tweet when it's available.

And, one more thing : Twitter2Press is free !

You can find an example of Twitter2Press on my personnal gallery, available at NewsdeGeek

Simply follow these steps :
  1. Download Twitter2Press here
  2. Upload in the wp-content/plugins Wordpress directory
