Since the author didn't reply to my short, polite e-mail... I created an account to specifically comment on this program.
I have had the plugin installed since January. It worked for the first 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, the "Could Not Shorten Your Post... Problem With Your URL Shortener" error started occurring everytime I posted to twitter.
I have tried selecting many different URL shorteners, confirmed my API settings, confirmed that I'm using the right username, etc. Nothing ever solves the problem.
Since January, I have deactivated, deleted, reinstalled and reactivated many new versions of this program. The problem is never resolved.
I expect to see a message from the author saying "You need to provide more details about this error", or "I was unable to recreate the problem you described"...
I see many such comments from the author, as well as posts describing the same error I have experienced as being "resolved", even though it is not fixed at all.
To the author: please either fix these problems or don't waste peoples' time. When a program never works - even though you repeatedly claim that solutions are available - making people go through the hassle of constantly reinstalling or tinkering with its settings isn't fair; it is a form of disrespect.
I have spent many more frustrated hours trying to make this plugin work than I have "saved time" when it (supposedly) uploads my posts to twitter. The primary effect this plugin has had is to make the task of maintaining a website more laborious, time consuming, and unpleasant.
