After a lot of work, Alex King finally got Twitter Tools working again. However, there is a catch. If you want to automatically post to Twitter, you will have to apply for a Twitter API to sync it with your Twitter Tools.
Although Alex says it is a big tricky, it really is not. The directions given to get the API working are very simple. It may not be easy for newbies, but if you have set up RSS Grafitti or a Facebook Application, it might not be so difficult.
Truthfully, all you have to do is follow the directions. Once you have filled in your website’s URL into the correct fields, the API will give you some codes for you to put into your Twitter Tools. Below is a screenshot of how I registered Blondish.net for a Twitter API, just for Twitter Tools usage.
It is important to note that if you are practicing in devious things online (like spamming) or have been reported for abusing Twitter in the past, Twitter may suspend you. The oAuth solution is the current approach, but according to King, he is definitely open to other solutions.
What are your thoughts on the oAuth method? Have you set your Twitter API for Twitter Tools up on your site yet?
