TweetMe – Another simple WordPress plugin that Twitters
[UPDATE] Twitter have now turned of HTTP authentication which means until the plugin is updated to use the OAuth, it won’t work. I haven’t got time to update the plugin right now, but will when I do. In the mean while, the plugin code is available on github, so maybe someone else could add this support. Thanks.
[UPDATE] If you install my new revcanonical plugin, then TweetMe will use auto generated short urls from your own website, instead of going to a 3rd party site.
If you do a search on Google there are loads of similar plugins out there. The problem is after trying a few, none of them did what I wanted, and many of them seemed far to complex for the task in hand. I simply wanted this. Nothing more, nothing less:
- I enter my Twitter credentials once and they get validated.
- I decide how I want my tweet to look.
- When I publish a new blog post, it gets sent to Twitter.
- If I update that post, I don’t want it resent, unless I choose.
- That’s it….
So that’s all TweetMe does.
