Publicize: Twitter

We dig Twitter over here at WordPress.com (check us out at @wordpressdotcom). With the launch of our newest Publicize feature, we dig it even more since you can now tweet your WordPress.com posts automatically.

Publicize - Twitter

You can stick with the default, automatically generated tweet, or customize it to your heart’s content.

The feature can be enabled from your Dashboard → My Blogs admin page. Once you enable it, you’ll be directed through an authorization procedure to confirm that you want to connect your WordPress.com blog and your Twitter account.

Just like the Yahoo! Updates Publicize feature, these connections are per blog and per user, so those of you with several blogs can choose which ones to connect, and those of you with multiple authors on one blog can each hook up your Twitter accounts separately.

More details can be found on the Publicize support page.

    This is fantastic…except that it doesn’t Tweet when you schedule a post. Can this be organised? I schedule most of my posts, so having this only work when you publish immediately totally ruins the usefulness of this feature. I’d make this comment on support…but support is down.

    It doesn’t appear to work for Scheduled Posts. I just made a scheduled post and the Tweet didn’t show up.

    Also, any explanation on why that preceding text can’t be removed?

    I’ve tried to post-date my post, so it will post to WP a few hours later and post to Twitter. WP doesn’t seem to send out the tweet unless I go back later and manually push it out. Should it tweet at the time of posting?

    Thanks a lot for this. 😀 It works well on New Posts, it sends the tweet like it’s supposed to.

    BUT..

    it doesn’t send tweets when a scheduled post is published. It would be great if that’ll work too. 🙂

    this is a v.good feature – 2 things that would be useful as you work on it in future:

    Fix the known issue about scheduled posts not working properly http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/no-tweets-on-scheduled-posts?replies=3#post-392076

    Ability to set the default text that goes out with the tweet – at the moment it says “posted to WP.com” would be nicer if I could make that the base domain for my blog, especially as I use a client side app (MS LiveWriter) to post rather than the WP web UI

    There appears to be a bug with using this feature with scheduled posts. My posts show up on my blog but the tweet doesn’t go out. When I edit the post, I find the checkbox blank. Once I check it (again), the tweet goes out.

    We want to have all posts by different authors tweet to the same twitter feed, but I’m pretty sure that does not work. I think twitter will only authorize one person at a time. Am I wrong? Did you guys test this?

    I think this feature has a lot of potential, but I agree with the wish that customizing the text could be saved.

    I also wish that an option could be set to not tweet every post by default, but choose TO send the tweet. My main blog is for work (a church) and includes updates for every little ministry and program plus community announcements, but only want announcements with the broadest audience to be tweeted. I already accidentally sent one tweet I didn’t mean to… so have turned it off again for now.
