IFTTT is a great platform that allows different apps, web services, and devices to communicate with each other. These are called Applets and you can set as many applets as you like.

All blog posts don't need to be 1000 words long. Sometimes 280 characters are all you need. IFTTT allows you to create an applet so Twitter can communicate with Typepad and publish a post when you use a specific hashtag.  Easily share your Twitter posts to your blog readers.
