At launch, Google Buzz is not a Twitter client. As the team explained earlier this week, they have about a thousand things they could do with the product, but haven't yet, and sending updates from Buzz to external sites, like Facebook and Twitter, is absolutely on the list. But while Google's developers work on improvements for the much discussed social aggregation service, the developer of Reader2Twitter, initially designed to post shared items from Google Reader to Twitter, has upgraded his product to share native Buzz items as well.
As I highlighted back in September, I set up a new Twitter account solely for my shares from Reader, and now those items which I post directly to Buzz are included in that stream at http://www.twitter.com/lgstream (or @lgstream).
My initial post directly to Buzz
To share items from Buzz to Twitter:
- Go to http://reader2twitter.appspot.com/buzz
- Connect it to your Twitter account using OAuth
- (Of note, you need to go to http://reader2twitter.appspot.com/buzz after this, as the OAuth returns you to the URL without the Buzz directory)
