WordPress – Auto Tweeting

Sharing is Caring

A couple of visitors have asked me how I am automatically tweeting my post title to twitter: I’m of course using a plugin that required very little configuration and making sure that I always use Posts -> Add New because the quick post functionality doesn’t work. The plugin I’ve been using that has worked so far without a hitch is called Just Tweet That Shit.

I chose Just Tweet That Shit because it uses the oAuth API, doesn’t include features I don’t want to use, and it can properly shorten urls.Configuration took less than five minutes which was also extremely simple and to the point: the hardest point was actually getting a Twitter API Key.

Overall, I really only have two complaints with Just Tweet That Shit: I don’t like that it doesn’t auto tweet on scheduled posts, and that it doesn’t current auto tweet on quick posts. If you have found an auto tweeter that can auto tweet on scheduled posts and on quick posts I would love to hear.

Hope this helps!
