    I have a couple accounts I use to post rss feeds through twitterfeed into ping.fm and today I noticed that they had all seized. I have been looking around and seen that a few other posts have been made about this through google/yahoo answers etc. Anyone got new ideas to get around the API key not working with twitterfeed anymore? Or possibly other systems the same as twitterfeed?

    Also just wanted to let everyone know to check out their stuff if they haven't already noticed.

    As Piscola said, the problem seems to be from the side of ping.fm, I checked my twitterfeed (I post RSS-feeds from twitterfeed into my twitter-account) and it works perfectly well. --> ping.fm´s fault!

    You used to be able to get your API key from Ping.fm easy, but now you have to send an e-mail to customer support requesting for the key. They say it's due to all the spam.

    Not that i'm knowledgeable about these things, but I wonder if it has anything to do with the changes to Twitter that are coming up, I heard oAuth will be no more. I dunno.

    I just checked and it has been broken for at least six days according to my dashboard.

    I did find a thread where someone from twitterfeed said they were aware and working with ping to resolve the issue.

    Weird, I don't think my ping.fm api key was suspended but it's still not posting.

    I just read this thread:
    Code:
    http://getsatisfaction.com/twitterfeed/topics/ping_fm_key_suspended_rss_feeds_not_working
    
    And this is what support said to one person who got their api suspended:

    Man this is frustrating.. ping.fm rocked for distributing to all the networks.

    I've gone through all my Twitterfeed 'Ping.fm' settings and all are ticked 'active', should I be aware of any background problems?

    What are you guys using now?

    I notice the RSS feature on ping.fm:
    Code:
    http://ping.fm/superfeedr
    
    but they only allow one feed, and there isn't any customization like Twitterfeed (since it's real-time).

    Please post any alternatives if you've found any.

    If you look in the dashboard of ping.fm, you'll see that they've also added google reader as a feed source. In theory this should be the answer to our problems. The problem, for me at least, is that google reader is just about the most cryptic piece of shit i've ever tried to use. There is a way to do it, i just haven't had the patience to figure it out yet.

    hmmm... I think ping.fm is just not working with twitterfeed.com. I've tried to use ping.fm and it looks fine. If you want to link own blog to ping.fm, use shorten2ping.
