  • I’m having a similar problem.

    I had been running Twitter Tools on WP 2.8.4 for a couple of months now. Have been using 2.0 since it became available. Midway through September my daily digests stopped posting. However, if I told TT to repost each individual tweet on my blog, as a post, it would.

    From what I’ve been reading elsewhere this is becoming a large scale issue.

    I’m also having an issue with twitter tools.

    I’m using: WP 2.8.4
    With Twitter Tools 2.0

    The plugin installed just fine, but it does not log into the twitter account successfully. When I configure the admin and click [Test Login Info] I get the following error:

    “Sorry, login failed. Error message from Twitter:”

    With no error message returned from twitter. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    twitter is not not informed about my new post…

    HELP ME. ASAP

    Using

    WP 2.8.4
    Twitter Tools 2.0

    Tools quit updating Twitter with daily blog posts, deactivated then downloaded fresh copy of Twitter Tools 2.0, reactivated.

    I’m stumped.

    Another 2.8.4 user. Tools quit working on all of my WordPress sites earlier this week. I’ve tried removing and re-install the plugin, but it still is not updating when I submit a new post.

    I even went as far as creating a brand new WordPress setup on my development server with just Twitter Tools installed. It shows the login is successful but when I publish a new post nothing happens on Twitter.

    Add me to the list. WP 2.8.4 and TT 2.0. I have been using it for months without problems. Stopped working yesterday for some reason. We started using RSS Graffiti on our Facebook fan page yesterday too. I don’t think that is what caused TT to stop working, but who knows. We uninstalled RSS Graffiti (it is a FB application, not WP), and TT still is not working.

    Are there any good alternatives to TT?

    I am having the same issue. Mine is working here and there, but certainly not like it used to.

    I was wondering if it is being blocked by twitter.com as part of a spam reduction effort?

    Having similar issues here, still troubleshooting myself.

    Seems to be a Twitter problem. Same issue with two client blogs and different plugin solutions. Updates stopped working a view days ago.

    Update:

    Interesting: http://www.google.de/webhp?hl=de#hl=de&q=twitter+tools+stopped+working

    I noticed the same issue with all of my blogs a few days ago. Twitter Tools is up to date. I just upgraded today to WordPress 2.8.5. so we’ll see if that fixes it.

    idem, while this still works:

    <?php
    $url = "http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json";
    $data = array('status' => "test hello world");
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, 'USERNAME:PASSWORD');
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Expect:'));
    $body = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    ?>

    anyway if you need to post your RSS feeds content to Twitter (without duplication) just use magpie, read the rss feed and write the lastdate to prevent duplication then crontab it = NICE SIMPLE WORKAROUND:

    require_once 'magpierss/rss_fetch.inc';
    $rss = fetch_rss('http://farmville.aweblog.net/feed');
    $filename = "/yourphysicalpath/ld.txt" ;
    $fp = fopen($filename, 'r');
    $lastdate = fread($fp, filesize($filename));
    fclose($fp);
    $wroteLastDate = false;
    // read feed
    foreach ($rss->items as $item) {
    	$published = $item['date_timestamp'];
    	if ($published > $lastdate) {
    		if ($wroteLastDate == false) {
    			$fp = fopen($filename, 'w');
    			fwrite($fp, $published);
    			fclose($fp);
    			$wroteLastDate = true;
    		}
    		$title = $item[title];
    		$url   = $item[link];
    		$guid   = $item[guid];
    		$description = $item[description];
    		$TwitterString = "$guid:$title:$description";
    		$url = "http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json";
    		$data = array('status' => $TwitterString);
    		$ch = curl_init();
    		curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
    		curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
    		curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, 'USERNAME:PASSWORD');
    		curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    		curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Expect:'));
    		$body = curl_exec($ch);
    		curl_close($ch);
    	}
    }

    Thought I’d give an update after upgrading to WordPress 2.8.5. I added a new blog post this evening and Twitter Tools started working again with tweets being made for each blog post.

    Greetings! I’m running WP 2.8.5 and TT 2.0. Some posts go through and some don’t and it seems to be on the Twitter end. Specifically, I found the words recommend and endorsement do not let the post through. How do we fix this? Can we at least get a message that it wasn’t posted to Twitter?

    I’m running WP 2.8.5 and TT 2.0 also. i also have found that twitter tools seems to have stopped working – right after i upgraded to 2.8.5 a couple days ago.

    magpie? is this something to add to my theme’s function.php?
