How To Upload Video to YouTube and Automatically Create & Share a Bit.ly Short-link to Twitter

I am a huge fan of automation. If I can automatically have actions performed by taking another action, i’m all for it. Check this one out.

In this short tutorial you will see how you can Upload your video to YouTube from mobile or desktop, have a trackable short-link generated with Bit.ly for social media, and automatically syndicate it to your Twitter followers. The same can be repeated for Facebook or most other social platforms as well.

STEP 1: Set up an account at http://www.ifttt.com
STEP 2: Set up an http://bit.ly account

Obviously you need YouTube and Twitter.
