url = http://example.com/rss
username = microblog_user
password = microblog_password
mode = title

items = 1
shortener = is.gd
service = twitter
The url is the url for the feed that you want to publish, mode can be 'text' (140 chars of your post text) or 'title' (your post title, with a link). The interval is the interval in which the feed2mb will publish your last posts. In the sample, feed2mb will check the provided feed each hour. The shortener will let you choose the shortener service, and the options now are is.hd, migre.me and tinyurl. The default will be tinyurl.
The supported services now are twitter and identica.
Run it with the command feed2mb. It will update your microblog with your latest posts, in the interval that you have set.
