- Set up an account with Twitterfeed
- Find out your flickr photostream's RSS feed. Go to your photostream (as an example, here's my photostream and look for the "Subscribe to ____'s photostream" text on the page. Obviously, fill in the blank with your own flickr name.
- Copy the RSS link by right clicking (or control clicking) on the link by the rss icon. Note that the link should end with "&format=rss_200."
- Go back to Twitterfeed, and click the link to "Create New Feed." Fill out the easy form, and you're set.
Some further advice: don't irritate your twitter friends by blasting out 5 updates at a time via twitterfeed: that's the default option but I don't like it. Their interface shows: Post up to new updates each time by default, I change that to 1 for my feeds. If you want to be chattier on twitter, then change the update frequency to more frequent intervals.
Yes, this works for any service which is rss-able, even Facebook.
