I’ve installed the “Yourls: WordPress to twitter” plugin for using my local yourls instance for creating shortlinks to my posts.
Unfortunedly the publicize plugin doesn’t create yourls shortlinks when publishing new posts. So ATM the publicize plugin is useless for me.
Question-is there a way to connect the bitly account to the share buttons beneath the post so the URL that is shared on Twitter is shortened? I installed the WP Bitly plugin and it works but when I try to tweet the post using the share button, it still lists the complete url and it is not shortened. Can you update that if you haven’t already? That’s a big issue.
Hey, I publicized a post to Facebook and Twitter and the problem is that it sends two updates to Twitter, each is the same but has different short urls (fb.me and wp.me) I really don’t care which one is used (I like the wp.me), but I’d rather have only one tweet go out. Any ideas?
Oh okay I just tried publicizing only to Twitter and it did one tweet with the wp.me short url.
So is there a way to stop it from making another tweet with the Facebook short url when I want to share the post to Facebook in addition to Twitter?
