Send messages to Twitter when a post is published or updated; uses OAuth. Will add a short URL from a plugin, or from an external service.

TweetUpdater will send a message to your Twitter account, from you WordPress installation, whenever a new post is published, or when a previously published post is updated; as you choose.

The tweet format is flexible, with placeholders for title and URL. URLs can be included from a variety of sources. In addition to full post permalinks (standard or friendly urls as selected in your site setup) the following short url services are supported:

Internal services:

Generic shorteners


External services:

  • Bit.ly
  • Stwnsh
  • TinyURL

Posts tweeting can be ommited based on post category, or custom field, or custom field and value pair.

Derived from the original TwitterUpdater, version 3 has been fully rewritten to include OAuth authorisation with Twitter; because basic authentication (username & password) has now been deactivated for applications using the Twitter API.

The TwitterUpdater plugin has a great tradition of being updated and improved by anyone who needed it to do something different, and as such TweetUpdater is one of a handful of TwitterUpdater forks.

If the short url service you like to use is not included, please see the FAQ on how to add it. If you add a service, let me know and I'll add the code to the next release.
