    I like this plugin A LOT! But after reading this ..

    Removed: Twitter functions
    Announced: End Of Life for this plugin

    I don't think I can upgrade as I will loose the option to post to my twitter account all my new posts which i REALLY need!

    Why is this plugin coming to an end? Is Yourls shutting down as well?

    The twitter option was a major selling point of this plugin!

    Totally agree with you Sim2k! 1.5.5 is the best version I ever had for this plugin.

    The plugin's author mentions on his site: "The latest version of the plugin does not support Twitter any longer. I have not enough free time to maintain that part, due to the regular changes from Twitter on their authentication process." - http://planetozh.com/blog/my-projects/yourls-wordpress-to-twitter-a-short-url-plugin/

    Can't really fault him for that. Maintaining a plugin can be time consuming in the best of circumstances, and Twitter changes policies often enough to give plugin devs quite the headache. Throw in the fact that these are typically done for free during free time, and maintaining a plugin of this sort can become quite the chore. He recommends installing another plugin to handle tweeting posts.

    i have 1.5.5 still on my computer from when i first installed the plugin, was that the latest before 1.6.1? I've got to get the twitter integration back.

    Anyone have a copy of version 1.5.5? This plugin is pretty much useless without the twitter functionality. I've tried a few of the twitter plugins which support yourls but they dont need this plugin.

    I found it here, wonder if it's been tampered with.

    If you really want v1.5.5, you can download it via the 'Developers' tab from the plugin page:
