Status Updater
Twitter updating no longer works (4 posts)

    Hey, I recently installed the plugin with no problems, love it. However for some reason over the past couple of days the updates no longer push to Twitter. As recently as Wednesday they were. I have the plugin installed on three different WP blogs and all three are only updating FB, not twitter. It had been working without error. The log email tells me 'the status ___ has been published to twitter'.

    Anybody else having this problem? Is it a Twitter issue? What else can I troubleshoot?

    Thanks

    You'll need to use a Twitter Plugin that supports the Twitter OAuth authorization mechanism. I'd check out Twitter Tools 2.4 which has added this support. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-tools/ There might be others but I was already using this one and he updated it.

    The old way of using your Twitter username and password with these stopped working August 31st according to an email I got from Twitter (this is for any Twitter app or script that used the Twitter API).

    Might want to contact the author of the plug-in to update it.

    Yeah, it's kind of a pain, but it is more secure since you no longer give Twitter apps your actual password to your account.

    Twitter is working for me but is splitting the status and the link into to separate tweets

    The author is no longer supporting the plugin. I have started using Network Publisher.
