We’re throwing a Texas-Sized Tumblr Meetup this Wednesday in Austin!
Heading out to SXSW? Come on down to Clive Bar on March 16 anytime from 1:00-6:00pm to meet and hang out with Tumblr friends old and new. Plus, we’re giving away hundreds of T-shirts, thousands of buttons, and a whole mess of stickers. Also: beer!
In other SXSW news, we’re hosting a developer gathering, an industry party, and Tumblr staff will be on-hand during the entire duration of the conference. We’re looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible throughout the week!
Please RSVP here if you plan to drop by the Meetup!
The sort of amazing thing about the comments on this Gawker post about the new luxury mag we’re doing is there seem to be a lot of people who think you can’t make money off of rich people. Every print launch we’ve done this year has been profitable, and some extremely so. I get the EWWW RICH…
Inspired by Wordpress’ seriously clever use of Loren Brichter’s new Tweetie options, we’re launching our own Tweetie and Twitterrific compatible API. This Twitter-like API should make it easy for a lot of existing Twitter clients to start supporting Tumblr.
The really cool thing - because our following models follow a lot of the same principles, we’ve been able to take advantage of a ton of native features:
- Retweeting = Reblogging
- Replying = Reblogging w/ commentary
- Favoriting = Liking
- “@david” = ”http://david.tumblr.com/”
- Conversations = Reblogs
To try out Tumblr in Tweetie 2, tap “Accounts” → “+” → enter your username and password → tap the gear icon → enter “http://tumblr.com/” in both fields.
For Twitterrific, tap ”Sources” → “Edit” → “Add a New Account” → enter your username and password → tap ”Advanced” → set “Base URL” to “http://tumblr.com/” and disable “SSL”.
