Bridgy, webmentions, and publishing.

Joe Gregorio has a cool feature for automatically posting blog posts to Twitter, which is interesting because it uses Webmentions to kick off the whole process. I.e. just including the link:

<a href=""></a>

The webmention sent to triggers it to look back at the post, parse it and look for microformats indicating what content to publish, and then posts it to Twitter.

Note that this also works for Facebook and Flickr, and you obviously need to authorize to post to Twitter for you.
