Twitter Tools 1.5

Twitter Tools, my WordPress plugin that creates a two-way integration between your blog and your Twitter account, has been updated to version 1.5.

This version has an important bug fix for a problem in earlier betas of 1.5 that didn’t properly throttle requests to Twitter.

If you are using a 1.5 beta – this is a must upgrade situation.

There are also a bunch of new features:

  • Weekly digests.
  • Updates to match Twitter API changes so that “in reply to” links are properly created
  • Ability to exclude @replies from daily and weekly digests and blog posts
  • added support for hashtags (linked to
  • Made URLs in blog posts clickable (using the tweet to blog post feature).
  • abstracted all API endpoints and URLs so that it can theoretically support any service that implements the Twitter API
  • Fixed the duplicate custom field issue for people running WordPress 2.6+.
  • Numerous other tweaks and fixes.

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 e-mail me a link to the thread.
