Reviews

Works Well + Excellent Documentation

This plugin does what it needs to and the options for posting / format are really useful.

Setting up the Twitter API is fairly complicated if you are a novice, but the documentation clearly guides you through this process, making it pretty straightforward.

Very pleased with it, and highly recommend this plugin as well as xyzscripts.
