Where are your Frequently Asked Questions? Why aren’t they here?
Right here: WP to Twitter FAQ. I don’t maintain them here because I would prefer to only maintain one copy. This is better for everybody, since the responses are much more likely to be up to date!
Twitter’s Application creation process is very difficult. Why do I have to do this?
WP to Twitter has always followed the principle that you are the owner of your own application. Many other applications require you to pass your data through a 3rd party that you authenticate to post to Twitter. Twitter has gradually made the process to create a new application more and more difficult. There is nothing I can do about that.
How can I help you make WP to Twitter a better plug-in?
Writing and maintaining a plug-in is a lot of work. You can help me by providing detailed support requests (which saves me time), or by providing financial support, either via my plug-in donations page or by upgrading to WP Tweets Pro. Believe me, your donation really makes a difference!
