It’s about time: SoundCloud now has super-smooth Twitter integration. It means that SoundCloud can now automatically post a Tweet when you upload either a new track or set to SoundCloud! Simply go to your settings and connect your Twitter account with SoundCloud (No need to put in your Twitter password, since Twitter now has oAuth support!)…
… click “Allow” …
… and the next time you upload a tune SoundCloud will post this to your Twitter stream. Neat!
In our last blog post we mentioned a few really cool ways that people were using SoundCloud and we’d like to tell you about another one. This time it’s all in the name of a good cause!
We know that many of you are on Twitter because we see you all busy using SoundCloud’s ‘share via Twitter’ social feature that we launched last year. If you’re one of these people then you should definitely get involved in Twestival.fm (a sister-site to Twestival, the festival taking place in 184 cities worldwide on 12th February).
The organisers are asking artist, bands and labels to donate tracks via their SoundCloud Dropbox. These tracks will then be made available for streaming and download between the 5th and 19th February at the Twestival.fm website using a SoundCloud player. The site is hoping to raise $20,000 by asking visitors to leave a tip in a Radiohead ‘pay what you want’ style. All money raised will go directly to charity: water to help build five new drinking wells in places where many have no access to fresh water.
You can donate your track via the DropBox below or simply share a track you already have in the Cloud with http://soundcloud.com/twestival
Donate your track
We look forward to seeing how the campaign runs!
“At the starting of the week
At summit talks you’ll hear them speak
It’s only Monday”
You can now “tweet” your tracks, as in post them straight to Twitter from the share-box above each track.
Simply do this:
and out comes this!
