How to update your Facebook status with Siri

As we mentioned earlier, you can get Siri to tweet for you with a little workaround.

You can do the same with Facebook. Just activate your mobile number at and create a new contact “Facebook” with the mobile number “32665″. You can now update your status through Siri using “Text Facebook, *status*”. Just remember that you use up a text message every time you tweet or post a facebook status.

Teach Siri how to tweet

Even though Twitter is deeply integrated into iOS 5, you are not able to use Siri to speak your tweets. Here’s a little workaround for that:

First, open on you PC or Mac. We first have to enable Twitter text messaging. To do so, click on your name on the top right corner and select “Settings”.

Select the mobile tab and enter your iPhone 4S mobile number with area code and click start. Twitter now sends you a text message to verify your phone number.

Now go to the Messages app on you iPhone and send “go” to “40404″. If you’re not in the United States, you can find your twitter shortcode here.

In your Contacts app, make a new contact. First name “Twitter”, phone number “40404″ (or your local shortcode).

Thats it! You now can open Siri and tweet by saying “Text Twitter …”. If you enable message notifications in the mobile settings on your PC or Mac, Siri can also read your tweets.

You can also use commands to follow users or retweet. This might now work out well because the usernames may be hard to understand for siri. But remember, you can always correct Siri with your keyboard if it didn’t understand you correctly.

  • FOLLOW username - Start following a user
  • UNFOLLOW username - Stop following a user
  • ON/OFF Turn all Tweet notifications on or off
  • ON/OFF username - Set Tweet notifications for a user on or off (you’ll still be following them even if you set it to off)
  • GET username - Shows you the latest tweet from any user
  • RETWEET username - Retweet a user’s latest tweet
  • FAVORITE username - Favorite a user’s latest tweet
  • DM username your – message - Send a direct message to a user

Siri not specifically compiled for the A5 processor

We all love our new personal assistant “Siri”. But some of us don’t have an iPhone 4S yet. Well, we have some good news for you guys. @iH8sn0w just posted on twitter that Siri is not specifically compiled for the A5 processor, wich means a port to the iPhone 4 / 3GS or other iOS devices might be possible after all.

“Excellent news. Siri is not just compiled specifically for the A5 (s5l8940x) processor. Thanks @Gojohnnyboi :)

Siri on iPhone 4

Sadly, Siri is only available on the new iPhone 4S. But for all of you who don’t want to update, there is still hope. iH8sn0w and other hackers are working hard to bring Siri to other iOS devices as well.

@musclenerd tweeted that the port of Siri to other iOS devices won’t be possible without piracy

“Anyone hoping for a “port” of Siri from iPhone4S: pending a very low-level A5 exploit, it likely can’t be done without piracy :( ” @musclenerd

“(only way to extract Siri files from iPhone 4S filesystem without pirating is to have the main FS keys, requiring low-level exploit)” @musclenerd
