    They are working from the desktop browser and from an iOS WordPress app, but not the Windows Phone 8 WordPress app. There doesn't seem to be any error message anywhere.

    If you can submit a support request, I'll try and follow up on this. Not easy to test for me, since I don't have a Windows 8 phone to use, so I'll need to walk you through some testing options.

    Thanks for replying Scott - unexpectedly, an upgrade to WP Tweets PRO resolved the problem, but if anybody else observes issues from the Windows 8 WordPress app, let me know!

    As a further follow up, it was not the upgrade that fixed the issue, but checking "Update when a post is edited".

    It seems the Windows Phone 8 WordPress app uploads the content in a manner that creates the post without the WP to Twitter plugin knowing; however, at the end of the upload, the app shows "Uploading Changes", which I guess is a final edit of the now existing post. I'm trying to read the code, and it looks like they are doing an edit instead of an add.

    The posts on my site don't get edited too often, so having "Update when a post is edited" turned on is a solution that will work for me.

    Ironic! When I asked about your basic settings, I was actually wanting to know whether update on edit was enabled -- since what you sent showed that it was, I didn't ask further to see whether that was a recent change! I should have asked more.

    At any rate, there's an option in the advanced settings so that you can set the default state for editing posts to *not* Tweet -- this probably won't effect the way that the windows phone app works (although you should verify this), because that app will be running the edit before the WP to Twitter meta data is saved.

    This should allow your new posts to Tweet but prevent accidental tweeting of edits if you do need to edit a post.

    Nope, checking "Do not post Tweets by default (editing only)" posting (and getting a tweet) and then editing the post still resulted in a second tweet.

    Ah - did you edit it via the app? If so, that's actually a completely different case - this will only protect against re-tweeting when editing via WordPress admin. I can't set anything up to have an external app send custom meta data.

    Yeah, the edit was done via the app.
