Slick plugin which works well 'out of the box' but benefits from being very customisable if you wish. Pro version is worth it to enable tweeting images and scheduling. Had to use support a couple of times and Joe's responses were always quick and very useful.
I've used this plugin for quite awhile, but can no longer use it because when a Tweet is sent with a new post, Twitter locks my account for automation.
I've tried every plugin for this under the sun, and the only complaint I've had since getting this plugin, and the pro add-on, is that it only does Twitter. because it does Twitter perfectly. Traffic and brand recognition are up because of this plugin, and my life is a lot easier, not having to manually share posts with multiple Twitter accounts every time.
I did create one issue, which was totally not a normal situation, that caused a glitch for the few minutes before I corrected my mistake (server/DNS level stuff, not WP or this plugin), and the author has been superb about it. Support was quick and very in-depth.
Overall, I'm just waiting for Joe to get this going for Facebook pages, Google + pages, LinkedIn, etc. so I can get those too.
Plugin handles publish tweets and auto-re-posting of recent and old posts to Twitter. Scheduling never misses a beat, options are clear and concise, includes templating so my authors don't have to learn anything to get the right tweets out with each post, and includes link shortening compatibility. Just a great job.
It wouldn't tweet the posts. I think the plugin needs to be updated for Twitter's current specs.
The free version is very simple to setup. I've never had any problems with this plugin; it does its job. Based on the superior support I received from Joe, I would buy the Pro version for future sites.
BEWARE !! This plugin appears to be now piggybacking another plugin called freemium, which is a "monetization" plugin. The current release bricked one of our client's sites, due to an external blocking call that took 8+ seconds on EVERY page. I'd avoid any plugin that attempts to piggyback another plugin and install it without your consent.
This plugin was functioning fine on our website for well over a year. With the most recent update, there is a notification to "Opt In" to provide data. NEITHER OPTION WORKS - i.e., you cannot opt in, you cannot skip. On top of this, it seems to be requiring a TON of resources to complete this process and has been crashing our database as a result. Unfortunately, we have decided to remove this plugin as a result. This plugin was GREAT for auto-updating a Twitter feed with posts. Hopefully they will address the bugs created with the last update.
Simple, straightforward configuration. Easy to set up tweet format. This is how all wp-plugins should work.
When i looked for first time the negative reviews, i thought "great, another crappy plugin".
When i read them, i just installed the wp to Twitter and never regret it.
It's amazing how some useless negative reviews helps you to decide what is the best.
Thanks Joe for this great plugin
WP to Twitter (Pro) is a great plugin for tweeting a post automatically and without thinking about it. The great variety of options is great to style a tweet the way you really want it. The support of YourLS is also great to create your own shortlinks on the fly.
And last but not least: The support is fast and helpful.
