Support » Plugin: Social Media Auto Publish » Tweets are getting cut off randomly

  • Resolved carlyjcais


    Even though I have not set a character limit with Social Media Auto Publish Settings on my WordPress blog, when I post to Twitter my tweets are getting weirdly cut off.

    It’s totally random! I include one photo and the permalink to the post. The Facebook posting is normal.

    What’s going on?

  • If you add only {PERMALINK} as message format then the tweet content will be just the image and link not any contents as you mentioned.
    Also there is hash tags in your tweet contents, are you using the premium version or you are adding these by custom message? (overridden at metabox settings of message format at each post).
    Also please check the twitter character length limit you added at settings of SMAP, make sure it is set to 280.
    Please check the message format and let us know ,if the issue persists.
    Thank you.

    Thank you @anjali94! That was it…I needed to add 280 to the character length settings of SMAP (I had left it blank).
    It is fixed now.
    Thank you for your help!

    Thanks for reporting this, @carlyjcais – just writing to say I had the same issue.

    My posts to Twitter were missing the permalink, even though I had {PERMALINK} in the body.

    Setting ‘SMAP’ to 280 fixed the issue (mine was blank too).

    I suggest the plugin should default to 280 rather than making us specify in future.

    But thanks for the great plugin!



    PS: I should say I was on version 2.4.0, and this may now have been fixed in version 2.4.1. (“Minor bugs fixed” in the changenotes).
