Posterous AutoPost to StatusNet

Posterous-logo

The more I play with Posterous, the more features I discover and they really have been rolling out new capabilities over the past couple of months.  Posterous can "Autopost" to many services across the web as you can see below:

Among some of the others I am using like Twitter, I also noticed one with the StatusNet logo under their popular free community Identi.ca, of which I am a member.  I thought at first it was going to just be direct integration with their StatusNet instance but to my surprise it allowed for custom API endpoints to be specified.  This allows many twitter clients and services to talk to a StatusNet install seamlessly.

My community, THE HEaRD, has been running since December 2008 and I am constantly looking for ways to post there.  Here are a few other clients/services that integrate with StatusNet that I use:
  • Ping.FM
  • iPhone Twitter App
  • HootSuite
  • Tweetdeck
  • Twhirl
For a full list of supported services/clients check out the StatusNet site.
