The easiest way to connect your Twitter and Blogspot account is to use the free tool Twitterfeed. Twitterfeed links your Blogspot account (on Blogger.com) to your Twitter account. It regularly posts updates to Twitter with a link to your blog entry, notifying your Twitter friends when you have a new post.

Click "Sign In."

Step 6
Click the appropriate link to confirm you own the listed blog site.

Step 7
Type a "Feed Name."

Click the "Test RSS feed" button to verify the feed works properly.

Step 10
Click "Continue to Step 2" to set your publishing services.

Step 11
Click "Twitter" from the Available Services list.

Step 12
Verify that "Twitter Account" appears in the Authenticated Twitter Account drop-down.

Step 13
Click the "Authenticate Twitter" button to open the authorization page.

Step 14
Confirm your "ID" and "Password." Update them if necessary.

Step 15

Step 16
Enter any additional tags you want published with your entries.
