Auto-Tweet New Entries to Twitter

The TwitterTools plugin for Movable Type enables you to easily and automatically share your MT entries on Twitter. The plugin pushes tweets directly to Twitter immediately when entries are published, avoiding the delays of other services. Futurer versions of the plugin will add additional Twitter integration features.

Post New Entries to Twitter Within Seconds of Publishing

There are a number of free services out there that will automatically share your entries to your Twitter stream. In most cases, these services work by periodically checking your blog's RSS feed for new entries to post. While this works, it means a time lag or delay before new items get posted to Twitter. The delays get worse and more frequent when these services become popular. TwitterFeed has over 1,000,000 users -- because they have so many RSS feeds to check, it can often be a long time before they get around to yours. The Twitter Tools plugin solves this delay problem by pushing the tweets directly from MT, immediately, when the entry is published.

This plugin has a much better approach than the Twitter feed services you decribe, after all Twitter is about being real time and not lagging behind.

Can I ask which part of my message is taken for twitter. The first 160 signs or I can choose which exactly to be tweeted?
