    Hiya :)

    Can someone confirm - Is this plugin still compatible with twitter? Desperately trying to get it working to no avail - keep getting "upload failed - a network or server error caused the media upload to fail" from Tweetbot, tweetings, and twitterrific. Cant use the Official iPhone Twitter app as they seem to have disabled custom media provider.

    Have permalinks set to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ and have tried all others too.

    Have also tried adding new user to no avail.

    I am really excited by this plugin as I have always been searching for how Stephen Fry et al do it!

    Thank you so much for any assistance.

    Hi Smoothy,

    I assume you checked the box that says "Allow new Twitter images to be posted from my account" in your user profile (Users -> Your Profile)? And that you set all the other settings according to the installation instructions?

    Does mod_security happen to block uploads? It took me a while to find out that it did in my case, when I tried to upload an image using Trumpet for Android. (When using the test script, everything worked fine.)
    My webhoster's error log showed errors like (edited for security/privacy):
    [Wed Apr 18 15:03:50 2012] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] mod_security: Access denied with code 500. Error processing request body: (null) [hostname "my.blog.address"] [uri "/tweetimage/1/wordpress/...secret.../upload.xml"]
    I emailed the helpdesk to find out what exactly caused this and am waiting for an answer. In the meantime I added these lines to .htaccess in the WordPress directory:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    They turn off the mod_security, as far as I know, which is not something I really like to do. I hope there is a better solution, but it may work for you.

    Ben
