Tweets As Posts
[resolved] Plugin doesn't post tweets (8 posts)

    I have used Twitter Tools plugin in a couple of blogs but it stopped working yesterday apparently due to some changes in Twitter API. Hence I decided to try this plugin, Tweets as Posts, instead.

    However, this one doesn't work either. Is it because of the same API change?

    Blog: http://www.sinivihreat.fi/
    Twitter: @sinivihreat http://twitter.com/sinivihreat
    Admin page screenshot: http://www.domnik.net/x/temp/tweetsasposts.png

    I have tried both manual ('Run Tweets As Posts Update') and automatic update. Is there something that I do wrong?

    The blog is set to Helsinki local time while the plugin apparently uses UTC time. I don't know if that matters.

    There is a hack to Twitter Tools at its support forum. That works. I revert back to it for now but as it seems not to be developed anymore I will stay in this thread to see if something happens here.

    Hi nli & diegopolo,

    No, the twitter api change has not affected the plugin - it is still running properly.

    The only true issue the plugin has is with a setting in some shared environments, the fix for which can be found in this support thread - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-tweets-as-posts-scheduled-updates-not-working?replies=12 so if you're on shared hosts please check for this.

    I'll be taking a look at the api to make sure there are no knock-on effects but for the moment it's running a-ok.

    Regards,
    Chandesh.

    hey nli, i just installed because twitter tools updated and the social plugin it now uses gives me 403 forbidden.

    anyway installed this and it works - what's missing from the instructions page is that your new tweets need to have the hashtag you specify in them.

    so you add: Hashtag(s): [news ] eg: news, events
    and then you tweet: this is new #news

    Thanks venkmanuk, but that was not the problem. As you see, I used such a tag in one of the tweets to try how it works but it didn't appear in blog (it later did, when I reverted back to Twitter Tools).

    The problem is probably the one with shared hosting that Chandesh Parekh pointed out above.

    My cron seems to be working once i made the update. However, now it's not picking up the tweets.

  8. @WAXFROGDESIGN Could you please start your own topic? This one was already marke resolved and so was the other thread you replied to.
