Delicious Introduces Twitter Connector

Posted on 3.01.2012

Social bookmarking site Delicious has announced an integration with Twitter that enables users to connect the two accounts to one another – allowing them to save any links from Twitter and add them to their profiles on Delicious.

The following is from the announcement on the Delicious blog:

The new Twitter Connector on Delicious gives you the option of tethering your accounts together, so any link you tweet, retweet or favorite on Twitter is also saved to Delicious. (Note to web speed junkies: sometimes the link-saving process can take a few minutes or more, depending on system demands, so be patient!)

Here are some features and benefits of the Twitter Connector:

•    Every link you’ve shared via Twitter in the past (up to the last 3,200) will be imported into your Delicious account. (Delicious will ignore any duplicates)

•    You can choose a link-saving protocol for future tweets, including a) saving each link from Twitter going forward; b) saving just the links in tweets hashtagged with #d; c) saving every link except those hashtagged with #d.

•    You get to assign your own Delicious tag to every link coming from Twitter, and any hashtag included in your tweets (aside from #d) will be converted to unique tags on Delicious.

•    Multiple Twitter accounts can be set up, each with their own discreet settings and preferences.
