Siri is incredibly handy for finding places to eat and sending text messages, but wouldn’t it be great if it could update your Facebook status or post to your Twitter feed for you? As it turns out, it—or is it she?—can, thanks to these clever workarounds. Since both Facebook and Twitter offer SMS integration, all you need to do is setup the service and then add the correct number to your contacts list under “Facebook” or “Twitter,” and you’ll be good to go.
For Facebook, you need to text “Hello” to 32665 in the US, then follow the instructions in the reply to finish setting it up, and add that number to your contacts. The process is very similar with Twitter, only you send “START” to 40404 to get the ball rolling. Once you’re done, all it takes to post is a quick “Tell Facebook (or Twitter)…” and your post will appear without touching a single key. [via Time]
