WARNING: These 9 Awesome IFTTT Recipes for Twitter Are Dangerously Efficient

WARNING: These 9 Awesome IFTTT Recipes for Twitter Are Dangerously Efficient

WARNING_These_9_Awesome_IFTTT_Recipes_for_Twitter-ls2awesome ifttt recipes for twitterNeed to automate small tasks to save time on Twitter?

Then IFTTT recipes are for you!

IFTTT stands for "If This Then That". It's an app that lets you create powerful automations (called "recipes") between different apps & services.

Why is this cool?

Well, why do things yourself when you can have your personal secretary -- IFTTT -- do it for you?

Each IFTTT recipe is unique -- containing (1) a trigger (the "if this" part) and (2) an action (the "then that" part).

The action is triggered by the, yes, trigger.

For example, let's say you want your Twitter profile pic to change when you change your profile photo on Facebook. No problem! Just set up an IFTTT recipe & it's done.

(I'll show you how set up this very recipe below!)

And I'm sure you'll see that IFTTTs are a great way to create Twitter hacks, Facebook hacks, and all kinds of others hacks. The possibilities are endless!

But here are 9 recipes to start you out. And once you start using them, you'll wonder how you ever did without them.
