Twitter Tools 2.3

I’ve updated my Twitter Tools plugin to version 2.3. This version has several security enhancements (thanks Mark Jaquith) as well as a change that may help some folks that have been seeing doubled digest posts. I recommend upgrading ASAP.

The Twitter Tools plugin creates a full integration between your WordPress site and your Twitter account. You can send your blog posts to Twitter, bring your tweets back into your blog (as posts, in the sidebar or in a digest) and post to Twitter right from your WordPress admin. Twitter Tools also works as a Twitter archiver, so you keep a copy of all your tweets in your WordPress database.

Twitter Tools has no known incompatibilities with WordPress 3.0 at this time and is working in our testing, however that could change between now and the time 3.0 is released. We won’t know for sure about compatibility until 3.0 is out there.

I also wanted to note that Twitter Tools will be supporting OAuth in a future release, before the current authentication is turned off.

The download and more information are available on my WordPress Plugins page.

If you have any trouble with this, please contact the WordPress HelpCenter (303-395-1346) or you can try the WP Support Forums.

UPDATE: there is a bug in the recent tweet function that has been patched in the development version. I’m going to wait a day or two to see if any other issues arise before releasing the dot one update.
