Tweet your IMDB rating automatic
This article will help you to automatic tweet your IMDB rating, without any script or plugins.
- Grap your IMDB rating RSS [your ratings must be public on IMDB site].
Go to your profile in www.imdb.com, then from “Quick Links” find your “Ratings” list. open it and you will see rss icon on the top copy it’s link. in this case mine is:
- Open feedburner account, if you have google account login with it at:
- from the textbox that says “Burn a feed right this instant. Type your blog or feed address here:" paste your IMDB rss link and click next.
- name your feed title and feed address or leave it default then click next.
now you have a feedburner feed. click on “Skip directly to feed management”.
- Navgate to “Publicize” Tab, and Activate “PingShot” service [this will allow feedburner to check automaticly for your rating].
- from same “Publicize” Tab, go to “Socialize” service.
- from “Select Account” connect your twitter account to feedburner.
- In “Post content” change it to “Title and Body” to get full tweets.
you can see the sample down in “Sample Item Preview” to what will be tweeted.
Go and rate anything on IMDB and it will show on twitter :)
by the way, sometime you need to wait 30 minutes or hours to see it [until PingShot work again to refresh your feedburner rss].
you can also make a new feedburner for your wish list on imdb, but you need to add filter in “Socialize” that says “I wish to watch:”.
all credits goes to who make this strategy, before a couple years I forget his name :( also I google it but can’t find it.
