TweetPost WordPress Plugin

TweetPost is a multi-user plugin that automatically tweets bit.ly or su.pr links to new posts.

Description



TweetPost is a multiuser plugin which allows wordpress publishers to automatically tweet their new posts to their Twitter account. Tweets consist of a message ("New post from @user") including a reference to the author's Twitter name, the title of the post, and a bit.ly shortened link to the post.

Currently, the Twitter Poster consists of the following features.


  • Authorize a global Twitter account with the site

  • Specify a Bit.ly login and API key to associate with the site

  • Adds a "Twitter" property to user details, so users can manage their own Twitter name

  • Automatically submits the permalink to bit.ly and adds that to the tweet

  • Adds a reference to the author's Twitter account in the tweet

  • Fits the tweet into Twitter's 140-character limit.

Frequently Asked Questions



Do I have to register my blog with Twitter?
Yes. Due to details of Twitter's implementation of the OAuth protocol, it is
necessary to register your blog as a Twitter API consumer application. It's silly, but fortunately it's not difficult to do.
