Get fitter with Twitter! (and traineo)

If you're one of the rapidly increasing number of people using Twitter, or even if you've just heard of Twitter (everywhere) and haven't decided to jump on the bandwagon yet, please read about our latest update below - it's likely to help you reach your health and fitness goals!

There are a couple of ways you can integrate your Twitter account with traineo:

1) Update you weight remotely from Twitter - This is a very simple and easy way to keep your weight up to date on traineo. From your Twitter account simply tweet @traineo with your weight and your traineo account* will update automatically with your weight within 15 minutes.

e.g. '@traineo 150 lbs', or '@traineo 75 kg', or '@traineo 12 stone 5 lbs'
* You'll have to link your traineo account with Twitter via the Profile > Edit Profile > Twitter menu or by authorizing traineo to access your Twitter account via your start page (see below).

2) Send a daily health update from traineo to Twitter - We're going to post another piece about this new feature but if you've logged into the latest version of traineo recently you'll have seen a field at the top of your start page where you can 'micro-blog' your daily commitment to improving your health and fitness.

This feature posts to your traineo profile so you can document the things you're doing to change your life. Unlike some of the things many people tweet about this is scientifically proven to help you towards your goals!

When entering your daily update you'll see an option to 'Tweet this' - if you've given traineo authorization, your update will be automatically tweeted.

If you're a Twitter user and you're also a traineo a member get started right away. If you're new to Twitter and are puzzled as to why you'd ever tell anyone what you're doing every five minutes I think you'll find this a great way to use Twitter for something productive that will help get you fit and healthy at the same time.

Please please please update the user interface of the "Food" tab. I can't tell traineo how much I ate on days that I binge eat because its often more than 1000 over my goal. Please fix the core functionality instead of coming out with novelty features! Thank you so much for your free service, though!

Thanks Dan...we'll take a look at the Food scale ASAP.

good idea implementing twitter, though i think allowing for a direct message to traineo's twitter would be a little bit better. i dont think everyone would be comfortable broadcasting their daily weight updates to everyone following them on twitter.

Alasdair said...

Yes, totally agree Scott. We've had a number of comments on this and we're going to add that functionality ASAP.

I'm just chiming in that direct messages to traineo's twitter would be best. I see you are already working on it... but wanted to show my support for that feature.

I want to lose weight more than I care about my privacy... but still a good idea to do it by direct message, I think. I guess that means that traineo will have to follow every user who wants to do this...

Alasdair said...

Direct messaging your weight in is now available:

Just follow traineo and we'll follow you back then just tweet:

'd traineo xxx lbs' or 'd traineo xx kg' etc to update your weight discretely.

Let us know if you have any questions.

I lose my weight after having only two products without any side effects . I got surprised when it done. Before starting the program I was completely in doubt but now I am happy and recommend to others. Just visit http://www.acaiberryinformations.com

Hi, I was wondering if I could chat with you about your Twitter application for losing weight? I am researching information on Twitter applications for behavioral changes and this app seems like a good match.

My email is haeree.chang at abc.com . If you can please email me I can get back to you with a number to contact me at. Thank you.

I do have a twitter account but I haven't connected it to traineo. But now I think I can multi-task with this phone.
