Once set up, you can click on a â€˜Blog thisâ€™ button on a photo page when available (account holders can turn off this feature on their photos, so you may not always see it).
Then you post the entry and get a tweet!
Many people will find it a useful feature that lets you broadcast details of your pics (and videos) on Flickr to your community on Twitter.
The only hesitation I have is thinking about other means Iâ€™ve already set up that include Flickr photos in notifications that go out to my Twitter community, all of them automated.
So Iâ€™d want to think carefully about tweeting so that I donâ€™t overload everyone with information they may already have via other means.
But if you donâ€™t have any other means set up, then youâ€™ll find this handy.
The wording you see when you set this up and when you want to tweet a photo suggests to me that itâ€™s an extension, so to speak, of what Flickr already had set up for posting info about pics from Flickr to a blog and via email to Flickr – â€œBlog this photoâ€ and other descriptors arenâ€™t how youâ€™d talk about Twitter.
And the only thing I canâ€™t see clearly is whether tweets get sent automatically whenever you upload photos to Flickr, or whether it works only if you manually tweet one, as I did in the test. I think itâ€™s manual only (Iâ€™ll find out on the next uploads I do; if itâ€™s different, Iâ€™ll update this post).
Still, itâ€™s a great additional service from Flickr.
