One Major Fault
By ,

The plugin works as advertised but has one major fault (as others have pointed out). Whenever a post is updated, for any reason, it is auto-posted on Twitter...again. For example if a simple typo is corrected, the post is immediately added to Twitter. When a post is deleted it's added to Twitter. This makes little sense and there is no way to avoid it.

You can limit auto-posting using tags, but there is no option to update or delete a post (even by creating and limiting it using a special tag) to stop posts from being auto-posted on Twitter each time a change is made.

So be sure your post is correct unless you want it posted each time a change is made.

Numerous requests to address this flaw have been posted on the plugin's support page with no response from the developer in over nine months (as of today).

Otherwise, this plugin works as advertised.

Inconvenienced
By , for WP 3.8.1

It does what it says it does: updates Twitter when you publish a new post or update a published post.

Unfortunately, it also updates Twitter when you delete (or otherwise unpublish) published posts. I'm sure not many people do that because it's bad for SEO, but it is a very inconvenient feature for chronic spring-cleaners like me.

Nice Plugin, but Some Areas Need Explaining
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin is very useful for pointing out areas you probably never thought about before. Certainly, no site can be without security these days, and having a different perspective is a must.

There are some things that are not clear, however. Some documentation would go a long way in these areas. I question a couple of them that are rated as "high risk":

1. Database names. That might slow down an attack in progress a couple of minutes, but in all honesty, if they've gotten that far into the system, it's practically all over already.

2. Secure Hidden Login isn't well explained and there is no reasonable answer as to how users are supposed to login if the page is hidden.

Now, ordinarily, both of these items would only knock off one star, but since the author has not answered my questions about number 2, then lack of support is another star.

Almost perfect

I really like this plugin. It's so useful, and it has just the right amount of functionalities.

It could be a little more user-friendly, and also I'm having a little trouble using the short urls.

The best twitter widget with one major limitation
By , for WP 3.5.1

+ The plugin is very much in-line with Twitter API 1.1.
+ Very nice options also for the appearance.
+ displays international latin-based characters correctly
- Major design flaw: settings are set not for instance but per category: So you can have only one profile widget and one search widget.Quite a waste for this great plugin...
