You should now be good to go. Any time you choose to post a photo to your Twitter stream, it will use your TweetPress plugin on your WordPress blog. Please let me know if you encounter any issues or have suggestions for Tweetpress.

I have been in contact with developers of other popular Twitter clients and hope to get Tweetpress integrated in them soon.

TweetPress coming soon to a Twitter Client Near You

TweetPress is the WordPress plugin that gives you total control and ownership of the photos you post to Twitter, sending your traffic back to your own blog, instead of a third party site

I just finished development of this WordPress plugin and Andrew Stone of Twittelator has integrated it into his latest version of Twittelator Pro. As of this post, that version is still in review, so you will have to wait until it is approved to make use of TweetPress.

I have some other very big plans for future releases of TweetPress and if you have any feature requests, feel free to drop me a line. I will do a post as soon as the latest version of Twittelator is approved and demo how it integrates with TweetPress.

iPhone In Action Book

iphone-in-action

A couple months ago, I was asked by someone on Twitter if they could “introduce me to someone”. I found this question a little odd so I responded with “like a girl or a developer?”. I often tweet about my wife, so I was hoping he was not referring to a girl. He replied with “no, someone at Manning Publishing, they are looking for an author for their book iPhone In Action”. So, I was put in contact with Manning and they eventually offered me the position as one of the authors on the book iPhone In Action.

iPhone In Action is a book (that is already out) and details how to program for the webkit as well as the native iPhone OS. I will be removing the webkit chapters, updating some of the dated chapters, and writing about 6 new chapters related to OS 3.0.

I will be posting about the book and my progress along the way (don’t worry I won’t stop my random tutorials about Twitter, WordPress, etc…). Just wanted to share that and say go out and buy the book (in December when I am finished and will get the commission :) ).

Happy Coding!
