Here’s a cool Mac app that Andreas Lienemann tipped me off about yesterday in the comments to my Pownce Message post.

Moodblast (aka Moodswing) will send a status update to Twitter, Jaiku, and Facebook simultaneously. It will also update status on iChat and Skype as well. And it does some cool tricks with the music you are currently listening to and you can get weather updates as well. I haven’t tried anything other than Facebook and Twittter updating, which works perfectly.

Follow this link if you want to download Moodblast and please donate if you end up using it. I did.

Of course, this doesn’t really solve my problem of wanting to update Facebook status with Twitter. I do many of my Twitter updates via text on my blackberry and that won’t get to Facebook. But if the person who wrote Moodblast can figure out how to update Facebook status automatically surely it can be done by others.

    Fred,If you use this userscript (… with Firefox, I think you should be able to do Twitter->Facebook.Greasemonkey can do some pretty amazing things. I remember when it first came out, I thought it was going to be a total game-changer. At, I was hacking together little userscripts like that for a while.Now of course, there are ways to do much cooler things for many more people, like building platforms on top of platforms. (

    Do you still have your iPhone Birthday Present? Use to do mobile FB status updates. Yes, it means actually bringing your iPhone with you, but I’ve found that my Blackberry 8830 and iPhone together take up less room than the original Handspring Treo…

      hi stewartmy issue is not that updating facebook is hard. it’s that i want to update facebook, and twitter, and pownce, and my blog, and anywhere else in one single post, either from my phone, or my laptop, or somewhere what i need is integration between all these services.this is something facebook can and should lead given their vastly larger audience size.fred
