Awesome and unique plugin
By , for WP 4.4.1

I have been using this phased out plugin with no substitute in the horizon. Unfortunately 'social' is also phasing out and I don't know how else I will convert my tweets into wp posts as perfect as this plugin use to. Wish someone would take over from where Alex King left off. He probably would too.

Great plugin!

It does everything I need – archive my tweets and provide links for hashtags and @mentions. However, I have two issues:

    a tweet with a photo shows two photos – the featured image and the thumbnail image (within the post)

  1. a tweet with a photo displays http://t.co/ but is not a link. I' like to be able to hide the t.co text.
Some issue with pulling in tweets
By , for WP 3.8.1

Awesome plugin, but I am experiencing an issue with automatically pulling in tweets as new blog posts.

Currently, they do not seem to get pulled in automatically, but only when I post a new blog post.

I hope this will be fixed, because otherwise I really do like this.

Best, Ben

EDIT: Since I wrote this review, the plugin has stabilised somewhat and stopped breaking sites, so I'm bumping my rating up from 1 to 4.

Dangnabbit! I used to like this plugin apart from some annoying debug errors. Now it seems to have become reliant on another plugin just to function.

Twitter Tools + Social = ?

Why do I have to use additional plugin which provides useless options?

A perfect plugin became next to useless
By , for WP 3.4.2

I was perfectly happy with this plugin until it got updated to version 3. Before, it was just working in the background, announcing my new posts on Twitter. Now it handed this duty over to the Social Plugin by the same Author and only has options to show my tweets in the admin screen, create (another) link for the tweet and show its credits.

Social, on the other hand, replaces the default commenting system with its own, without asking (at least you can disable it) and annoys by showing another screen to "broadcast" your post to Twitter and/or Facebook when you publish it, forcing you to do a couple more clicks to do what used to be only one click with the old Twitter Tools.

You lost one very happy user.
