Tweet Images

A replacement for TwitPic, yFrog, etc, for posting images from Twitter clients to your blog. Creates a post per image.

What's this about a secret? (AKA "The Security Question")

Unless your website is secure, i.e. the web address starts with "https" and you see a little padlock in the location bar when you're visiting the site, then all the information between your iPhone and your website will be transmitted "in the clear". Transmitting information in the clear means that if someone can intercept the information then they can see it without any further effort on their part. This means that transmitting your WordPress or Twitter username and password whenever you send an image opens you up to potential hackers and mischief-makers stealing your credentials and posting information on your WordPress blog or Twitter account. To get around this, Tweet Images generates you a unique and very hard to guess secret. The Tweet Images secret can only be used to post images to your WordPress site, and can be reset very easily to re-secure your site. This isn't an ideal solution, but it's the best we could think of in the circumstances.

Future releases of this plugin will support secure connections between your iPhone and website.

So how do I reset my secret?

Go to your User Profile (in the WordPress admin area, click on your username top right) and click "Regenerate Secret". You'll then need to redo the settings in your Twitter app.

Does this plugin have any hooks?

Yes it does! Check out the code for more, but briefly you can filter the category a tweet image post is put in with the wpti_post_category, the post data used for the post with the wpti_post_data filter, the image size used for the tweet image in the post with the wpti_image_size filter, and the tags for the post with the wpti_post_tag filter. There is also an action wpti_published_post which is fired whenever a tweet image post is published.
