I know there are tons of Twitter/Wordpress plugins out there, but so far I have not been able to get one to do what I need.

I have lots of scheduled posts. When a scheduled post goes like, I would like a Tweet to go out announcing it. There seem to be lots of plugins that will tweet when you publish a post, but so far none of the ones I have tried will do it on a scheduled post. Right now, I am using Twitter Publisher, which does not do what I want.

Anyone using something that works?

You don't necessarily need a plugin to do that. Here are 2 alternate methods:


You can use FriendFeed (details here, disclaimer it's my blog).


If you use FeedBurner to manage the RSS of your blog, you can go to the Publicize tab, then click on the Socialize sidebar link and set-up FeedBurner to post on Twitter when a new post comes up (it has more options then FriendFeed).

I did not know about the FeedBurner thing. Great solution! Took all of 5 seconds to get it working. Thanks! – Drew McManus Jul 9 '10 at 19:47
@Drew glad I could help :) – mbillard Jul 9 '10 at 20:08

If you use Feedburner for your RSS, you can do it directly from the "Publicize" tab under "Socialize". Works a treat.

Look at wordtwit found on this list of wordpress twitter plugins.

I think twitterfeed would be better idea, you give your blog rss+twitter account to twitterfeed and set monitor schedule, twitterfeed will send your scheduled post after publish.

Best Twitter Plugin for Wordpress (and I tried around 10 or so) seems to be "WP to Twitter" http://www.joedolson.com/articles/wp-to-twitter/

It seems to be the only one where you can define a CUSTOM text to tweet. I hate tweeting just the headlines - seems stupid to me because that is what the RSS feed already is made for.

You can also use IFTTT to social integration and update from all forms https://ifttt.com/
