Read & blog on WordPress.com from your iPhone via Twitter

Here’s an odd but fascinating hack discovered by Team 55 at the WP Quebec meetup: using the Twitter API, you can read and publish posts on WordPress.com from your iPhone! Matt Mullenweg explains step by step in this article. Pretty much any third-party Twitter client is okay; the key is to change the API URL to twitter-api.wordpress.com and then you can log in using your WordPress.com account.

Instead of following users you will follow blogs. Refer to them by their domain names (e.g. matt.wordpress.com). Support for replies and retweets will be added soon.

When you post a status update using our Twitter API, the update will appear on your blog. (If you have more than one blog you can choose which one gets the updates. The option is in your profile.)

Read more about this here. Matt also announced that they plan to release a WordPress MU plugin for this, so stay tuned for that one.
