Reviews

Simple, effective, but exhibits some odd behaviour

Simple and efficient in premise. However, there seems to be a bit of a problem with it that should be resolved:

It tweets out random URLs that aren’t even real posts, with links to non-existent pages on the website.

This is probably due to a lack of understanding of special post plugins, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to stop this.
