Are you sending your Chatter to Twitter?

8 years ago

Hi. My name is Denise and I am a BlogHer addict. I am also a Twitter addict. Thankfully, BlogHer Chatter allows me to feed both of my addictions at once. (Now if I can just convince it to bring me coffee...)

BlogHer Chatter provides OAuth functionality that allows me to Chatter as often as I like and have my messages sent automatically to my Twitter stream.

Did you notice I said OAuth? That's right, we've updated our Chatter to Twitter functionality to better protect your online privacy. This also means that if you set up your Chatter to Twitter functionality prior to August 18, 2009, you need to go back to your BlogHer settings and update your Twitter settings.

It's really easy to set up, let @hedonia show you how.

Log into and click Settings from the My BlogHer menu.

Scroll down to the Twitter Settings section of the profile settings page. Click the Connect to Twitter button.

You will be taken to Twitter where you will enter your Twitter name and password. BlogHer will not store your Twitter log-in, just an authentication key that allows you to maintain a connection between the two services.

Once you sign in to Twitter, you'll receive a confirmation that you're connected and you'll be taken back to your BlogHer settings page. Your BlogHer Chatter posts will now be sent automatically to your Twitter stream.

Enter a message in the Chatter box and submit by clicking the Update button.

You'll see this message appear at the top of the page, telling you that your message was sent to Chatter and to Twitter.

Look at your Twitter stream and you'll see the BlogHer Chatter message has appeared as a Tweet with from BlogHer Chatter messaging.

If you decide you want to stop sending your BlogHer Chatter to Twitter, you can easily break the connection by going to your BlogHer Account Settings or to your Twitter Privacy Settings and clicking Revoke Access.

What are you waiting for? Set up your Chatter to Twitter connection and take advantage of the opportunity to send 140 character messages to both of your addictions communities at once.

We're always eager to hear your feedback or suggestions for new tools and improvements. Leave a comment or send us a note via the Contact Us form. If you have any problems, I'm happy to assist.
