TweetUpdater

  • Added tweet length checking, will trim the title and force shortening of long urls to keep tweets under 140 characters.
  • Added generic YOURLS shortener support - for both public and private installations. Can use timestamp-hashed secret keys (preferred) or usename/password combo (sent in plaintext).
