    Hi Nathan-

    I'm far from an expert, but can you tell me what steps you took? If you are using this plugin, could you maybe list what other plugins you are using and with what theme to rule out a conflict?

    I haven't tried many others, but this plugin works great for me.

    Can you please make sure that Auto Embeds are turned on in WordPress? Go to Settings - Media and look for Auto Embeds. Hope that works for you.

    I did a little googling and found this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

    I didn't even realize that WP autoembeds Twitter as of 3.4. As far as I know, there is no setting to turn this on or off... maybe it was deprecated?

    I deactivated/deleted this plugin and it worked fine for me either way.

    Can you tell me what version of WP you are running and what plugins? I'm far from an expert, but I'll help if I can.

    Hi tnx for your help

    im running WP 3.5 (latest version) ... a have some plugins installed

    So it seems like we DONT need this plugin anymore, why you have it installed ? ... i hope Konstantin Kovshenin can answer us

    I tried to update that post and now works
    http://www.bberryblog.com/blaq-blackberry-playbook-solo-199-usd-hasta-el-jueves/

    i believe is an API problem, since sometimes works, some times not, its just matter of update the post in order to make it work !

    You don't need this plugin, unless you'd like to embed tweets with Twitter's shortcode and/or HTML embed code, which will be converted either way. Since the last few updates, the plugin simply uses the original embed method, so:

    * make sure auto embeds are turned on in Media
    * switch to Text mode
    * enter the URL to a tweet on a line by itself, i.e. empty line before and empty line after
    * publish and view post/page

    The above will work without the plugin too. If you're still running into problems, please try the same way to embed a YouTube video. If it works, please let me know the URL of the page you're trying to embed your tweet in, an the full tweet URL.

    Thanks!

    Tnx

    I want to quote "In WP 3.5 theres is no option to turn on/off auto embeds, its by default on (i read it on the link that zanzaboonda posted)"

    Anyway i prefer to omit this plugin since works without it

    Tnx a lot for you help !

    Best
