How do I get my links in Twitter to post to Delicious?
April 4, 2009 3:31 PM   Subscribe

Is there a way or tool to easily wed Twitter to Delicious, through sickness and in health? Preferably more health...

I have been using Delicious since 2004 to save bookmarks, so I can access them anywhere. However, since the advent of Twitter, I find myself just posting links to it, in order to spread the word of something interesting, quickly. I still want to keep a copy for my "records," though.

How might I go about doing this, without having to essentially double post? Ideally, I would like some tool that detected when I posted a link in Twitter and automatically added it to Delicious, too, perhaps with the full tweet's text in the link description area. I'd like some solution for tagging, too, but I realize that may be asking for too much, really.

Does anything like this exist? I found out about twitticious, but it seems to have issues. That was also posted a year ago, so I'm hoping that there are some newer tools out that I'm not aware of. Help me, guys!

People ask this often enough that we (the Delicious team) have a forum thread for it. Tweecious is worth a try, and so is TwitchBoard.

To send things the other way, Twitterfeed can pipe your bookmarks to Twitter.
