Record your 12s in TweetDeck (plus API news)

Hey Everyone!  We don’t use our blog enough to deliver news so I’m going to take this opportunity to write a blog post to announce that you can now record your 12seconds posts using the best, most popular and completely superior Twitter client – TweetDeck.

It couldn’t be more simple.  Enter your 12seconds credentials after you hit the “12” button in the header of the application.  Not only will you be able to view all that great 12seconds content, you’ll also be able to record a new post from your webcam by hitting the record button on either the top or the bottom of the column.

It’s our singular goal to provide an application that makes both creating and watching short, pithy videos incredibly easy.  TweetDeck allows us to fulfill that goal by creating an environment whose purpose is to make more sense out of our increasingly busy socialmediasphere (I made up a word!).  In other words, those who use TweetDeck will love it even more and if you haven’t downloaded TweetDeck yet…you really should.

All versions of TweetDeck will be updated over the next week or two with this functionality built in, but if you want to play with it right now you have to download the latest version right from the TweetDeck site.  So go download it and let us know what you think!

The 12seconds authoring API

It’s time for us to release our authoring API for 12seconds.  This means that you can integrate recording 12seconds into your site the same way TweetDeck has done.  12seconds is great fun on our site but allowing others to embed the recording functionality has limitless potential.  Video commenting, video contests, video story collaborations, video music mashups!  Whatever you want to do with it, have at it!

If you want access to this API, you have to let us know so we can get you set up.  You’re going to need a parnter ID.   You can find more information about the authoring API as well as contact us to receive a partner ID here.

Alright, get out there and make some 12s!
