    Hi,
    i dont have any trouble with the twitter-tools but a kind of feature request.
    Is it possible that twitter-tools only report NEW posts to twitter?
    Actually it posts to twitter erverytime i edit the post.

    I'm still getting this bug using the 1.1b1 version on WP 2.3.2 using the K2 theme.

    I'm also getting this bug in the 1.1b1 version. Could you give us a hack workaround for the time being until the next version is out?

    I dropped a line to the dev via his website, and got a quick reply. He must not monitor this thread/forum.

    Anyways, what he told me was that the plugin actually only does this if you edit a post that has not yet been 'twittered' by the plugin.

    Since I edit and preview my posts quite a bit before publishing, I just disabled that feature. Kinda sucks because I like the concept, but not the Twitter spam while double-checking my work.

    If there were some sort of time-delay the user could set, perhaps that could fix it? I'm no coder, so I have no idea how it all works.

    That might be how it's supposed to work, but it double posts for me all the time. Editing a post after it is published and tweeted still sends out the tweet.

    I took a cursory look at his code but don't have time to get into it too in depth yet and unfortunately it's a bit more than a quick one-liner.

    If I get time and fix it, I'll post a solution here.
