Tweet2Post

Description

Feature Requests are welcome and Support is free!

Overview

Tweet2Post is a WordPress plugin that allows you to import tweets as posts.
* A list of hashtags gives control over which tweets are imported.
Options include setting a “master hashtag” to import all tweets using that hashtag.
* You can link hashtags to post categories and define a default category for post without a category hashtag.
Define as many hashtags for category (or categories for a hashtag) as you like. All tweets will be posted accordingly.
* You have the option to define a Custom Post Type (and custom categories) for imported tweets.
* All posts will use SEFs.
A santized version of the tweeted text is used as the Search Engine Friendly URL (slug). This will make it easier for Google to rank the newly created pages.
* The included Scheduler can be used to import tweets automatically. The automatic import can be scheduled to run every 1/5/15/30 minutes, as well as hourly and daily. You can also run a manual import from the plugin settings page.
