Description: TweetUpdater will send a Twitter message from you WordPress installation whenever a new post is published, or when a previously published post is updated; as you choose.
The tweet format is flexible, with placeholders for title and URL. URLs can be included from a variety of sources. In addition to full post permalinks (standard or friendly urls as selected in your site setup) the following short url services are supported:
* la petite url plugin
* WordPress Permalink
Derived from the original TwitterUpdater, version 3 has been fully rewritten to include OAuth authorisation with Twitter; because basic authentication (username & password) has now been deactivated for applications using the Twitter API.
The TwitterUpdater plugin has a great tradition of being updated and improved by anyone who needed it to do something different, and as such TweetUpdater is one of a handful of TwitterUpdater forks.
If the short url service you like to use is not included, please see the FAQ on how to add it. If you add a service, let me know and I'll add the code to the next release.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
1. Download and extract the plugin from the zip file
2. Copy the plugin folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
4. Link the plugin with your Twitter account by following the instructions on the new TweetUpdater Settings page.
Either upgrade automatically from your admin pages. Or if upgrading manually: deactivate TweetUpdater before copying the new files across; then enable when completed.
* You will keep your settings when you upgrade from version 3.x and above
* TweetUpdater will remain linked to your Twitter account when you upgrade from version 3.x or above.
