how to get asides published to twitter and facebook? (3 posts)

    Hello everybody,
    I modified the motion theme running at my site, and added a form on the homepage that allows me to publish a post in the "asides" category without having to visit my dashboard.. it's really useful to me since I can use it almost like I do with facebook or twitter and sort of update my status...

    What I wanted to add, was a bit more of enhancement, I wanted to be able to update my facebook and twitter status using the content of my "asides" blog posts...
    The form I've written makes use of the wp_insert_post() function.

    So what I'm asking is, is there a way to send the content of my post to facebook and twitter?? I'd prefer not to use a plugin, I like the fact that my theme works as some kind of big plugin which adds extra functionalities to my blog, so I'd love to code it on my own... What I don't know is how services like facebook and twitter works... can you give me some directions on where to start??

    I posted here since this isn't really a theme related issue, I hope I'm in the right place ;)

    Thank you in advance and I wish you all the best for the holiday season and the upcoming new year!!

    What you'll likely need to do is register your app with Facebook and push contents to the stream using their API. Their Social Channels page will likely give you the info you need. What you're looking to do is quiet advanced so you'll need a working knowledge of PHP and web development.
