Twitter / Netflix integration

Netflix has added twitter integration.  So now, you can direct message netflix and have discs added to your queue.  This page will walk you through the steps.


  1. If you had your Netflix queue added to your FriendFeed, then FriendFeed would have done this automatically for you. (but linked back to, instead of netflix)

  2. Netflix's Twitter integration is different than what FriendFeed does. With the Twitter integration, you can send a direct message to Netflix to have a disc added to your queue. While with FriendFeed only shows what is in your public Netflix feed.

  3. Just an FYI: Netflix is unaffiliated with the "d addnetflix" app that I wrote. They released an API and so did Twitter, so the application just uses the APIs to let the two talk. No affiliation other than that with either Netflix of Twitter required. :)

  4. It seems Netflix will finally find its way on to the Nintendo Wii (currently the only console without the rental streaming service).
