Tweetable

Integrate Twitter with your WordPress blog. Automatically tweet new posts, display your latest tweet in your sidebar, etc. Uses OAuth for user authent

What the @!%$ is OAuth?

OAuth (http://oauth.net/) is a standard used by sites like Twitter to allow third-party scripts to request access to your account. It's much more secure than simply handing an application your Twitter username and password. Thanks to OAuth, nobody can steal your Twitter password if they managed to gain access to your WordPress database.

oEmbed? What's that? How do I use it?

oEmbed is a protocol that makes it easier to embed things in your blog posts, such as YouTube videos. If you have the "Auto-embeds" option turned on in your Media settings, then Tweetable will add Twitter oEmbed support. This means you can embed tweets in your blog posts, and they will be rendered in a fancy manner that looks consistant with Twitter.com. To embed a tweet, look for the "Embed this Tweet" link below a status update on Twitter.com. (For an example of where to find it, look here.) Click it and copy the plain Link it gives you. Paste the link on it's own line in your post, and it will be replaced by the entire tweet when you view the published post.

What is the bookmarklet on the "Tweet" page?

If you drag it into your browser's bookmarks toolbar, you can tweet a link to a web page just by clicking it. (You will have to log into your blog admin, of course.)

How do I enable YOURLS support? What does it do?

YOURLS (http://yourls.org), or "Your Own URL Shortener" is a PHP application by Lester "Gamerz" Chan and Ozh Richard. If you have a short domain name handy, you can quickly set up your own URL shortener, complete with an API that Tweetable can hook into.

In order to let Tweetable create new short URLs using your YOURLS install, you need to configure a few settings on the Twitter->Settings page in WordPress. First you must input your YOURLS username and the domain where it is installed into the "Shortener Login" field. An example would be you@example.org. The @ symbol is used as a separator between the domain name and the username. If YOURLS is installed in a subdirectory of a domain, you may have to use something along the lines of you@example.org/directory. The second step is to put the YOURLS password in the "Shortener API Key" field.

Who made the icons used in Tweetable?
