Learning about WP to Twitter

April 27, 2016


Topics: Blogging, WordPress.

Given that I first wrote my plug-in WP to Twitter almost 8 years ago, and it’s been in continuous development since then, you might expect that I know all about it. But that would only be half the truth. What I know about WP to Twitter is the code base. I know how it works, I know why I made various decisions, and I know what I really want to change in future development. But I know very little about […]

Topics: Blogging, WordPress.

WP to Twitter is a simple plug-in — publish your post, send out a Tweet. WP Tweets PRO makes that a bit more sophisticated: publish your post, send out the Tweet a few minutes later and schedule a couple additional Tweets for points in the future. But it’s still straightforward – WP Tweets PRO gives you a setting to determine intervals. You can have your post Tweeted 10 minutes after publication, then you can set an interval (say, 13 hours), […]

WP to Twitter and the recent Twitter API change announcements

August 30, 2012


Topics: Blogging, WordPress.

Twitter is currently in the much-lambasted and disruptive process of making big changes to their API. As the author of a WordPress plug-in which only exists with any value due to its ability to use the Twitter API, I have to be pretty attentive to these kinds of changes. The API changes probably won’t have any significant impact on WP to Twitter or on most users of WP to Twitter. Technically, I’ve needed to change the name of the application […]

WP to Twitter 2.4.0 release — with PRO upgrade!

I finally released version 2.4.0 of WP to Twitter today. The latest major version release was quite a long time ago – 2.3.0 went out in June of 2011, and although it has received 18 (18!) bug fix or minor feature updates since then, the plug-in hasn’t had a good overhaul for a very long time. Well, that’s not true anymore. The version I released today has some pretty substantial changes — it no longer requires cURL support, for one […]
