How to move Google Buzz to Twitter automatically?
Before reading! There is no need to move Buzz to Twitter. After activating Buzz in Gmail, it seems almost a clone of FriendFeed. Google designed Buzz as an integrator of social streams. I guess you add just one stream FriendFeed to Buzz.
Today Google released Google Buzz, the Gmail based social messaging service. I think it’s quite fun and smart application and useful to share information within Gmail. But, how to move messages of Google Buzz in public to Twitter automatically?
There is a solution by Google Buzz APIs. It offered a feed for syndication, but the message was included in content area. So I made new RSS feed using a Yahoo! Pipes to transfer them to FriendFeed or Twitter. If you wan to do and have Google profile, the account of FriendFeed and Twitter, you can do this by as following steps.
1. Make a your new feed
You can go my pipe of Google Buzz Stream and input your Google account of your Buzz. If you click “Get as RSS”, you may get new RSS feed as a format of http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=d72af57d3ed302585a00bd9b67e850d6&_render=rss&id=googleid.
2. Add Custom RSS into FriendFeed
You can add Buzz messages to your FriendFeed stream by setting Custom RSS in services preference. If you do that, you can see Buzz messages in your FriendFeed.
3. Add Twitter publishing in FriendFeed
If you want to Buzz messages to publish into Twitter, you can add CustomRSS of Buzz in Advanced Twitter Settings.
Of course, Google Buzz is not limited in 140 characters, but you can show your status from Google to Twitter easily using open standards technology. Enjoy Google Buzz!
