While Google+ still lacks the type of API information needed to create full-on apps at this time the new startup platform TwooglePlus has come up with a solution that allows users to cross-post their Tweets directly into their Google+ account.
Simply visit TwooglePlus.com and sign up your account. You will enter in your Google username and password and then the application “watches your Twitter account 24 hours a day and cross-posts your Tweets to your Google Plus circles.”
According to the company the program was created because:
“How can you say anything meaningful in 140 charaters” – who has now taken to it because it’s a fantastic way to follow people you admire. A big question is whether Google+ is going to follow a similar route, because these days one of the big questions about Google+ is “Why would I post on that network when I already share on Twitter?”
While TwooglePlus is still in beta it does already let you choose which circles you want your tweets posted to and you can choose to shorten your links if you so choose.
Just one bit of warning, the program is still very new which means we can’t be sure how secure it is at this time, after all you are giving up your Google account username and password and not simply “allowing” an app as you can with other networks that offer open APIs.
