Posting to Twitter

For the life of me, I can't get a twitter notification to work. I know I've input the correct username and password, but no luck. Anyone have any thoughts?

I think Twitter's recent API changes have broken the Twitter plugin. A risk of dealing with a third-party service! It's on my list to fix for the next release. Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Same thing here too. Do you need to add the @ in front of the user name?
If I could ask for a feature request, have a "test tweet" button to test the settings.

I haven't released a fix yet... it'll be coming in version 3.6, probably in a couple of weeks time.

You can test it now, though: click the Notify Now button in the Notifiers list window.

Re: Posting to Twitter

This is not fixed since three months now. Is it really that complicated?! When will there be an update?!

Re: Posting to Twitter

Twitter changed their API, which will require significant modifications to the Twitter plugin. But no, it isn't that complicated... I just haven't got around to it yet. I've been too busy with other projects. and unfortunately Simon has been neglected. I do actually hope to work on it today, though.

I'm sorry for the delay; it's frustrating for me too.

Re: Posting to Twitter

Simon 3.6 includes a rewritten Twitter plugin, so it is now compatible with the latest Twitter APIs. Sorry for the inconvenience!
