Auto-posting del.icio.us links to Twitter

I’ve recently started posting links to del.icio.us again, which now also appear on the sideblog. Having seen @qwghlm set up auto-posting to Twitter, I had a look at doing the same.
bit.ly has instructions on its blog to do this, using its URL shortening service and TwitterFeed. I think you need a bit.ly account to do this as TwitterFeed asks you for a bit.ly API key, but this means you can track clicks on your links. I already have a bit.ly account so this wasn’t a problem. I also told TwitterFeed to prefix all delicious tweets with [delicious].
It seems to work quite well, despite using 4 services.
