Tweet Audio Clips Using Chir.ps!
We’re excited to announce that we just launched a Twitter API, Chir.ps (http://chir.ps), a way for users to tweet audio clips. These audio clips can come in a variety of forms – whether it is something you recorded, i.e. your own voice, sounds from an event, a question you pose to your twitter followers; an audio clip you found on the Internet or on Entertonement.com; or an audio file you’d like to upload from your computer.
To tweet an audio clip, log into http://chir.ps with your Twitter username and password, choose to “Record Yourself,” “Upload a File,” or “Enter a URL” (this option can be found after clicking “Upload a File”). Once you’ve recorded, uploaded, or pasted in a URL, write a message to go with your chirp, click “Tweet Your Audio Now” and voila, you’re chirping!
Chir.ps also works with iPhones, using the native “Voice Memos” application. To tweet using your iPhone, record a sound and email it to your custom Chir.ps email address; the email’s subject line becomes the message you’d like to accompany the chirp.
In addition to posting to a Twitter stream, Chir.ps sounds can also be shared through email, embedded in a blog or uploaded as a ring tone.
