    Hi all,

    Is there a script or a tool which can automate the process of adding pictures to Twitter tweets? So that you can click the 'View Photo" link below the tweet after it is tweeted?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Do you mean uploading the picture to the twitter website / twitter service, or just including the URL of the picture in the tweet?

    Exactly what I wanted. I want to upload say 1500 images to twitpic or something, then auto post them using tweet adder or similar.

    I had a quote for interfacing with twitpic a api but I think it was around $400 which was too expensive for me.

    If you find a way let me know, or if anyone can quote a reasonable price we could split the bill.

    I will have a play around tomorrow and see what I can do.

    The thing confusing me with twitter is how they create the composerID.

    A bot will be fine, as long as it is fully automated.

    Please both keep me posted about this. As long as it is a reasonable price and it does in short the following:
    - Post pictures to twitter service (API?) from a csv file/mysql database or dump file with local picture location, tweet text, hash tags
    - Possibility to put a random delay between posts
    - Somehow possible to schedule it with a cronjob or windows scheduler
