[update 20121022 (24 days later). Called it. Twitter killed Find Friends access on Tumblr. So bummed]
If you’re a brand (or person) on Twitter with a set of strong relationships, it’s great to be able to bring them over to other networks you’re a part of like Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
Twitter recently took away “find friends” from Instagram. You’re no longer automagically notified when a new Twitter buddy joins Instagram, or given an easy way to find them upon sign-up.
RIP Twitter buddies.
The lameness of Twitter doing this is beyond the scope of this blog post, so let’s be constructive.
Now would be a good time to find your Twitter friends on Tumblr, while you still can.
Yep, you can find Twitter friends on Tumblr. Tumblr hasn’t done the best job of putting this under our nose, but it’s been here for a while now. On your Tumblr Dashboard you can go to Find Blogs -> People You Know (Or just jump to: http://www.tumblr.com/lookup ), hand over Twitter auth and see if any of your Twitter buddies are also on Tumblr. (Once you get there, Tumblr does a really nice job of giving you their Twitter name next to their Tumblr name. Something other sites don’t do as well.)
Well what are you waiting for? Git!
