    Hello,

    First of all I wanted to say thanks for this great plugin!

    It actually is working very good, but I'm experiencing one problem (not directly related to your plugin) and I don't know where to turn to solve this.

    Every time I make a wordpress post it gets posted to twitter (thanks to your plugin). But I have made a further connection with facebook, twitter tweet gets posted on facebook wall as well.

    My problem is that some posts on facebook wall conatin images but others don't, mostly they do though.

    When I create post I always add images, and I don't understand why sometimes facebook wall contains images from wordpress post, but sometimes not.

    Facebook is a little unpredictable, I find. You may want to investigate either OpenGraph or Twitter Cards as a way to include meta data about what images are important for your page - that might help Facebook pick up what you want more reliably.

    Thank you I will check those out.

    I was thinking that maybe it's related to the way I upload and insert images in post, since most facebook wall posts contain pictures.

    I think I found when pictures don't appear.

    In your plugin, I have disabled url shortening and on twitter urls aren't shortened. But when they are posted to facebook, they are shortened, sometimes facebook displays full urls, but sometimes urls are shortened and when they are picture doesn't appear :(

    This is undoubtedly a Facebook inconsistency. Twitter URLs are shortened (by Twitter's t.co shortener), but they generally display the full URL to browsers. It sounds like Facebook is inconsistent about which one they pick up. There's nothing I can do about this.
