MySpace with Twitter


How to Connect

Be it Twitter users, or MySpace users they can connect to their accounts using OAuth. To identify status updates that came fromMySpace, the status update from MySpace will appear as fromMySpace in the Twitter stream.

Possible Options for MySpace Two-Way sync

You would be happy to know that it is totally upto you to choose either one-way sync(read-only) or two way sync with Twitter.

MySpace Sync Functionality

This sync feature brings with it the following functionality

  • Status updates synced from MySpace to Twitter and vice versa
  • Updates originating from MySpace will be noted as such onTwitter and vice versa
  • Status syndication can be enabled for one-way or two-way
  • When updates are posted to Twitter, readers have a link back to MySpace to make commenting easy
  • Enables on-the-go status syncing (for Twitter and MySpaceMobile – WAP and apps)
  • Open authentication technology (OAuth) protects account credentials and data shared between sites

So what do you think about this step taken by MySpace. Is this the right step or does it require more features addition.
