Sometime ago, I noticed that my twitter integration plugin for WordPress, Twitter Tools stopped tweeting when I make a post here. I checked to see if there were any updates and found that there weren’t any updates and that it hadn’t been been updated in a long time.
So I poked around to see what’s new, better, and faster in the world of twitter integration. Turns out there’s a lot of plugins to choose from, but in most cases they’re pretty much garbage. After some digging, I found Tweetable.
I got distracted for a bit and haven’t been able to sit down and get the old plugin out and the new in. But, in the interim, my original plugin updated to a new major version. So, I’m pausing on jumping ship, and gonna give the newer version of the plugin I was using a shot.
All I really need is the part that tweets when I post, and the widget that lists recent tweets. But, the updated version of the plugin also does some new tricks like aggregating twitter and Facebook replies back into your blog. That would be super cool. But, baby steps for now.
