Blog Scrobbler Tells Your Twitter Followers Which Blog Posts You Are Reading

Do you have a good following on twitter and would love to share the blog posts you are reading with them? Blogscrobbler is an add-on for Firefox that let’s you do exactly that. If you spend a minimum of 15 seconds reading a blog post, it will automatically tweet it to your twitter account.

Since this add-on does not have a page in Firefox add-on directory, you have to manually install it. First download the .xpi file and then open it with Firefox. Once you have installed this add-on go to Tools and select Blog Scrobbler options to add/change twitter account and other settings.

You can change the number of seconds until the post is scrobbled, add websites to whitelist/blacklist and choose to shorten the URLs with Tinyurl or Bit.ly.
