#UPDATE: Since Twitter changed authorization mechanism, Posty 1.8.2 will not work with Twitter. I will update this post with a new version as soon as I can. Thanks.
There are many microblogging services out there. Sometimes you feel you have a “message” to send or a question to ask. If you subscribed many services, one of the first questions arising is: where do I post this? Twitter? Jaiku? Tumblr? Friendfeed? all of them? For each service usually you have to: open the browser, login, write message, click post. Although some cut and paste can save you some time, the task can get boring soon. Posty simplifies your microblogging. All you have to do is writing the message and clicking a button. Posty, an award winning application, will automatically deliver your message to the services you selected.
