Beyond TweetBacks: Introducing TweetSuite





TweetBacks are great, but they’re just a single feature, the integration of Twitter and blogging can and should go much deeper than that.

And if you liked TweetBacks or TweetSuite, please vote for me in the Open Web Awards.

So today I’m releasing the first version of TweetSuite, a Twitter-WordPress integration plugin that includes the following features:

  • Server-side (no-JS or remote calls) TweetBacks
  • ReTweet-This buttons for each TweetBack
  • A digg-like Tweet-This Button
  • Automatic Tweeting of new posts
  • A Most-Tweeted Widget
  • A Recently-Tweeted Widget
  • A My-Last-Tweets Widget
  • A My-Favorited-Tweets Widget

You can see a lot of the functionality contained in the plguin, just by looking around my blog. Remeber again, this is beta stuff, and upgrades will be made available through the automatic upgrade feature.

If you want to use the automatic Tweeting of new posts, you’ll need to enter your Twitter username and password on TweetSuite’s settings page, and if you’re currently using any TweetBack plugin, you’ll need to deactivate it. To use the widgets, go to Presentation>Widgets.

If you liked this post, don't forget to subscribe to my RSS feed or my email newsletter so you never miss the science.

awesome plugin but I found that it doesn't always submit my posts as tweets.. especially if I create the post first as private and then set it to public afterwards.

Very great Plugin – Thank you! Only a fix for the problem “Be the first to Tweet this post” would be fine.

Hi there

I'm trying to find a WP to Twitter plugin so that when I post a blog, a short link like bit.ly or budurl or tinyurl appears with the headline in my Twitter feed.

Please can you advise.

My posts don’t automatically show up on my twitter account after they are published… What am I doing wrong? I did check the option in the admin panel of course…

Valdy January 23, 2010 at 7:21 pm

Hi Dan. This is an excellent plugin. I had an issue though. I didn’t see any Retweet icon on each article. Any ideas? BTW … I am using the latest WP.

oriten February 23, 2010 at 8:58 pm

Hä?? Whats that…first, the tweet and retweet links(buttons) are empty (source code), nothing happens! And when activate “Send a Tweet when you publish a post?” i only get the title and no LINK on twitter! Impossible, have anyone the same issue? or im stupid…? HELP..THX!

alexphare March 9, 2010 at 9:00 am

Hi Dan, Thanks for a great plugin. I have one problem in the 'My Tweets' section. The link is coming out as, for example:

http://twitter.com/AlexPhare/statuses/10024129394“ rel=”alternate

Which is preventing the link to twitter from working unless the last bit is removed. Can you help with a fix?

Thanks in advance,

Alex.

Twitter is constantly changing it’s TOS and it’s recommendations to T relate applications. So you have to be alert and willing to change your approach. That’s good because you have to be better and better.

Fred March 14, 2010 at 3:10 pm

Plugin sucks – does not work. You can't code dude!

Gary March 19, 2010 at 9:44 pm

I also get the same thing Keep getting this after saving settings:

Anybody know what it means? any htoughts

eilenez March 23, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Hi… I installed the plugin and then activated the widgets for My Tweets–how do I get my actual tweets on Twitter to show up in the sidebar? I'm new at this, and am learning… any advice?

Great plugin .. downloading it for my blogs. Just one concern, hope it does not slow down my blogs. 2010 is the year of faster websites so hope that the plugin will help without slowing down the sits.

A big thanks for releasing your hard work to the community.

Dev March 24, 2010 at 8:50 am

You are an idiot. Didn’t anyone force you to use this plugin?

Denya March 27, 2010 at 12:08 pm

Very good!
Thanks

markevertz April 12, 2010 at 3:18 am

OK Dan…feeling Dumb. I've activated your plugin and deactivated others re: Tweet streams.
Still can't seem to get them to show up on my WordPress blog. After chuckling at my idiocy can you or others give me a clue or code than I need to roll into my site to get my Tweets on my blog? Thanks in advance and thanks for building what I hear is an awesome app.

Thanks for this great plug in! I have one question. Is it possible to move the tweetbacks so they will show up before the comments? On my blog the Tweetbacks shows up before the related posts and then comes the comments.

Tom April 17, 2010 at 11:39 am
