The second beta of Twitter Tools is now available for download. This fixes pretty much all known issues in the first beta and includes digest posting. It’s still beta because there are a couple of Twitter API changes coming (hopefully soon) that will allow a few things to work in a much easier fashion. I’m delaying the full release until the new API is available.
Two notable items that will be changing when the new API features are released:
- Adding support for downloading tweets even if you aren’t publishing them publicly.
- No more needing your Twitter ID (username and password will be enough).
Also note, the digest posting is not tested as well as the other features because it was only recently completed. If you run into issues with it, make sure you let me know.
The download and more information are available on my WordPress Plugins page.
If you have any trouble with this, please open a thread in the WP Support Forums and send me the link. I’ve subscribed to the twitter-tools tag feed, so tagging the feed with ‘twitter-tools’ will make sure I see it.
