Support » Plugin: Simple Facebook Connect » SFC & FB Fanpage to Twitter

  • Hi Otto

    I use your SFC plugin to publish to my FB Fan page and it works great…however, I am trying to integrate the FB Fan page with my twitter account so that it tweets posts from my Wall.

    Twitter will tweet anything I enter into FB Page manually, but it doesn’t tweet the posts I upload via SFC?

    Is there a reason for this? Some sort of OAuth restriction or something to do with the plugin or Facebook API?

    Any help would be great

    P.S. I use TweetBlender to pull in mentions into a feed which is why I cannot simply use Simple Twitter Connect (which is annoying because STC is awesome!)

    Many thanks

    I don’t think that Facebook’s twitter code support publishing anything other than “Status” posts to Twitter. A Status post is like a normal post, but only contains the message part. Once you add a link and such, then it’s not a status anymore and won’t get pushed to twitter.

    Thanks Otto

    Do you have any plans to include a twitter feed module in any upcoming STC releases? Would put all of my problems to bed 🙂

    I vote YES! I would also like to automate the posts to Twitter… somehow.

    STC already has a built in STC-Publish module that sends posts to Twitter. I use it myself on a couple of my sites. You can see my feed at

    But if you’re talking about pulling back from Twitter, then no I don’t have that in STC yet. Generally most people want to display tweets on their sidebar or something, and Jetpack has a nice widget built in for just that, so I recommend that most of the time.

    Yeah I need to pull back from twitter – I currently use TweetBlender, but this causes a conflict with STC which is why I cannot auto post – would Jetpack cause the same conflict? If not then great but I recall the STC duccumentation saying it will not work with other plugins that use the Twitter API?

    I hope I’m wrong 🙂

    Thanks again for the quick reply

    Jetpack’s Twitter widget works fine with STC.

    The Jetpack Twitter is pretty good.
