Happy New Year!
Sorry for the long absence from the blogosphere, I have been busy at work before the holidays and spent most of my time doing stuff. Fun and exciting stuff that pushes the boundaries of Web 2.0 and Mobile 2.0
Announcing the beta version of Twit2948 MMS! Now you can post your photos from your mobile phone and link them to your Twitter post!
How to upload photos and post twits at the same time:
- Create a new MMS message.
- Attach an image.
- Write on the body:
TWIT [your message]
- Send it to 2948
Standard VAS charges applies.
Note: The service is currently on beta, there are no confirmation messages when posting MMS at the moment. Use at your own risk.
This service is now pushing the boundary on innovation, why? MMS uploading is not entirely new but check out this sample twit and follow the links: http://twitter.com/godie/statuses/563037932
Notice anything weird? The twit has a TinyUrl link to a site hosted at Googlepages and the images are stored at ImageShack all for free!
While ImageShack uploading and TinyUrl has and API, making Googlepages run dynamic contents is a hack I made (there is no Googlepages API at the moment).
This is just the beginning, as APIs become main stream and OpenSocial gains wide adoption there will be a shift of business model. No single domain will be able to claim dominance and their web identities will be merged, there will no them.com or they.com or that.com but a you.com -- It means the web experience becomes a whole rather than disjointed websites.
