Posterous API: We’re a direct replacement for TwitPic

Posted by Sachin Agarwal to The Official Posterous Posterous

The Posterous API is a direct replacement for the TwitPic API used in
desktop twitter clients and iPhone applications. It lets you upload
photos to your Posterous site using just Twitter credentials.

Except it’s better. We allow you to upload multiple photos and you get
an image gallery. We offer the full size download of the image, or a
zip file of multiple images. It posts to *your* Posterous site, which
may have a custom domain and Google Analytics. And we autopost not
just to Twitter, but also Facebook, Flickr, and many blogs. Oh, and
TwitPic is down all the time. That’s no fun.

Michael Arrington, Guy Kawasaki, and Rainn Wilson all use Posterous in
place of Twitpic. They email photos to Posterous, and we update their
Twitter and Facebook accounts. We’re extending this to the desktop and
iPhone apps with this API.

Coming soon: support for audio, video, and other files. We can handle it all.

If you use a Twitter client that has TwitPic support, email them and
let them know they can add Posterous support today! We use all the
same methods, responses and errors, so integration should be a breeze.

API documentation can be found here.
