MT-Twitter v1.0

An easy way to announce blog posts via your Twitter account.




Movable Type versions: 4.3

Thanks for creating the MT-Twitter plug-in. It works like a charm.

However in tweeting a post, I’d like the ability to include some additional query parameters on the base URL for the post. The main reason is so that I can check how well my Tweets perform at driving traffic to my site in whatever web analytics tool I use.

For example… Instead creating a tinyURL for the following post URL:

I’d like to append some extra bits (these would be the same for all posts) like so:

This would allow me to track, using Google Analytics in this case, the twitter referrals as a campaign. Essentially all this would need is an option box to allow me to enter my custom query parameter extras in the plug-in setting screen so that they could be added before the URL is made into a TinyURL.

Is this something that is easy to do with your plug-in (i.e. a local tweak I can make) or something you would consider adding to the next version of the plug-in?

hi there, first of all: thanx for the plugin! exactly what i needed.

i do, however, have one problem with it: it will occasionally refuse to post a tweet. anybody else have that? i suppose this is due to the fail whales diving in twitter’s API … usually, the tweet will be posted when i re-try like an hour later.

any idea if there was a way around this behaviour??

cheers, -f

Thanks so much for the plugin but I can’t get it to work. I’m on 4.3 and all the functions work properly until I actually post: it does not seem to communicate with Twitter.

Any help would be appreciated.

Used to work fine for me for a while but since about one week it has stopped, on several MT installations.

Same here. I would be great if the latest version of Movable Type, would integrate this feature..

funtoosh on October 26, 2009, 3:15 a.m. Reply

yep, stopped working, i suppose twitter changed their api? ian, any idea, if you can fix this? there are, afaik, no alternatives to the plugin!

Ian Fenn on October 26, 2009, 5:03 a.m. Reply

I think Twitter is having issues, I’m afraid.

I think twitter changed something - it hasn’t worked for a couple of weeks now… :(

Craig on November 21, 2009, 10:02 p.m. Reply

Just installed it and it works fine.

Unfortunately, it has the exact same name as an older MT-Twitter plugin (that does the exact opposite, which is to bring your tweets INTO your blog) and the two plugins cannot co-exist. Given that I can rely on to submit my blog entries into my Twitter stream, but there’s no comparable service to do the opposite, I’m keeping the older plugin until either this one is renamed or MT embeds this functionality directly into MT.

Hi Craig, Thanks for pointing out that the plugin works - I’ve grown tired of responding each time twitter has issues. However, my plugin is actually older than the one you’re referring to. I proved this (and the fact it was published earlier) but the other author chose to keep the name. All the best, Ian

The plug works fine except that the urls are no longer shorted.

funtoosh on August 23, 2010, 2:10 a.m. Reply

the plugin still works fine, but twitter will be switching to oauth next week, so i guess the plugin will break then? any chance for an upgrade, ian? there is another plugin that already supports oauth, the docs are in japanese though, and i’m still struggling to make it work. see over here:

Ian Fenn on August 23, 2010, 3:47 a.m. Reply

Hi, Unfortunately I have no plans to update mt-twitter. Back in January, Marc Boucher (@00mb) asked if I’d be happy for him to take the code and build on it, so perhaps this is an avenue worth following up.

In closing, thank you for using the plugin. I’m sorry it’s time to let it go, but I’ve really backed off doing MovableType work after a number of decisions by Six Apart seemed to suggest the future did not look bright for independent MovableType consultancy.

Ian Fenn on August 23, 2010, 3:56 a.m. Reply

I don’t know whether Marc used my code in the end, but hopefully this will fill the gap once completed:

ian, thanx for sharing & supporting the plugin over the years!

My last post didn’t seem to make it. Yes I’m working on a new version of MT-Twitter called TweetType. See the link above in Ian’s post for more information.
