Twitter directly from Flickr


Flickr has joined the Twitter revolution and now allows users to directly post pictures or videos into their Twitter streams.

They can either be uploaded directly using a dedicated email address or can they can be tweeted from Flickr using the ‘blog this’ function.

The tweets will show a special short URL and the user will have 116 characters left to tweet any additional info.

It’s about time Flickr got official with Twitter. Services such as Twittergram have demonstrated that linking from Flickr is an easy thing to do.

Fizy – super-quick streaming of songs and music videos


Are you a big fan of Spotify, but you’d like it to be more… illegal? Fizy is for you. It’s a super-quick website that’ll let you search for songs and music videos. I’m not kidding about super-quick, we’re talking ‘faster than searching your MP3 folder’ quick, on par with the aforementioned Spotify.

That’s not the only similarity. It’s got a very clean interface with minimal features and you can easily share tracks with other people. It claims to have more than 75 billion MP3s in its index, and you can expand or remove any videos involved.

Very impressive, and very useful for ‘do you know that song?’ moments. Not exactly a media player, though, as there’s no playlist functionality. I quite like that, though. That’s what I’ve got Spotify for.
