Twitter Tools compatibility (4 posts)

    I'm just curious if Social interacts/integrates with Twitter tools in any way? I like that it will send the tweet about the new post for me, but I also liked some of the features of Twitter tools like being able to add default tags, as well as use a URL shortener like bit.ly/j.mp

    Can the two be used simultaneously if we just turn off the auto-tweet feature in Social?

    Okay, after looking through more of the plugin's documentation, it appears that it will find tweets, if they're not using a URL shortener. So I can continue using Twitter Tools, but just turn off the bit.ly part, and Social will still add those tweets as comments (though it will probably also add the initial tweet by Twitter Tools).

    It would be really cool if you just added the default hashtags feature from Twitter Tools to Social (as well the field in post edit to add/edit them). If that feature were added, I think I could just shut-off Twitter Tools at that point and use Social exclusively.

    bit.ly URLs are not generally a problem. A new version of Twitter Tools, built on Social, is in beta.

    That's awesome! I'll look for that in the near future.
