Instantly share new threads posted in select forums to Twitter with this nifty modification. Supports adding hash tags and automatically trims your thread titles to fit within the 140 character limit.

Why use Tweet Poster?

Tweet Poster allows your users to stay up to date with your forums' news even while they're not at the computer, by having new threads posted in certain forums automatically post to your Twitter feed.
Additionally, search engines tend to prioritise links found on social media websites.

You can also optionally append hash tags to your automatic tweets, further increasing your exposure by making sure your tweets show up in searches for specific trends.

When a new Thread is created the Twitter post creates this text for the link: http://www.vBulletin-site.com/showthread.php?t=x

It is possible this text to be the Thread link text instead? Would look much better SEO-wise.

I see this is for auto posting to twitter. I am looking for a twitter plug in similar to the facebook that has a "like" or "post to" similar to how Face book works and not automatically post to twitter when you make a new post or thread. Am I making sense?

I want to click on a twitter button to tweet just that particular post I want to tweet out.

Will this do that and if not can someone pointy me to a current one that will work with the twitter updates. I have read on some that the hack stopped working.

Oh and I am running 4.2.2 and fixing to upgrade to 5.0 Please advise if there is something that is available that I am looking for.

Jon

Make sure you have followed the steps to create an app on your Twitter account, and given it permission to post new tweets.

Our DragonByte SEO product has social sharing features, but if you're not looking for URL rewrites as well, it may be overkill for your needs. BOP5 has a mod dedicated to social sharing, though I don't recall the name of it just now.

Anyone know where this is? I did a search and found nothing. Most everything I have looked at in the mods say it wont work with 4.2.2 or is not what I am looking for. Any one up to the task of creating it?

Oh I did find one the maybe will work but you have to use that tiny url service and that is something else I am not fond of.

Hey!

First of all, great mod - have been using it for a while on a news website and it works perfectly with twitter.

I was wondering - would it be possible to limit this to specific users? that only when they post a message it will be tweeted?

Could be of enormous use... thanks!

Hey Fillip,

a little bird sang me a song this morning, there would be a facebookPoster v0.x in the pipe. Any chance to get an ETA on that? Such a poster would be something I (almost) would kill for

Oups....

A little WARNING:
this mod posts everything to twitter - unfortunal moderated posts, too. Especially when you have tpearls mod Advanced Guest Posting and Registration (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=312323) installed - that holds tons of spampostings in the moderation queue unless they become deleted by the built in routine -, they´ll be posted to twitter in realtime. You can only stop that by deactivating the twitterposter-mod, until DBTech is solving that problem.

Fillip, please have a look into this asap, that posts in moderation queue are ignored for posting to twitter.

@DragonByte Tech Plugin is not working out of the box for me ...

Since our previous plugin 'WS vBulletin Tweet Poster' stopped posting about a month ago (still don't know why, even created new twitter app to test) I decided to switch to this one.

Downloaded, installed & configured version 1.0.1.
But after creating a first new thread in one of the subfora that was enabled in this plugin,
I immediately get a blank page saying "Invalid Response."

No idea what went wrong, also no entry in the httpd error logs.
Anyone any clue?
Thanks!

We have no plans on creating a Facebook Poster mod.

This mod is only intended to be enabled for News forums, which should be restricted to your staff & editorial news groups. Additionally, this mod already does exclude threads that are flagged as under moderation. If you have an automated spam-detection script, it's likely this script runs after our mod, which is outside our control.

I would recommend restricting this mod to your News section, and close the News section off from guests & unauthorised users

Have you set up the app with Twitter? You can't use the same app credentials as were used for other apps.

Yes, created a new app for it, with it's own API keys etc ...

Do you think that the "Invalid Response." comes from your plugin, or from Twitter? Any idea how I can debug this?

Thanks!
