Allows you to set up automated tweeting of entries, based on a schedule.

Automatically post notifications to Twitter based on a schedule.

Requirements

  • The the oAuth PECL extension (http://pecl.php.net/oauth)
  • PHP >= 5.2

Installation

To install this module fully, you need to take the following steps. *If you already have a consumer key and consumer secret from Twitter, skip to step 2.*

  1. Register your website with Twitter (http://twitter.com/oauth_clients/new), setting “Application Type” set to “Client” and “Default Access Type” set to “Read & Write”. The rest of the details are up to you.
  2. Add the “Consumer Key” and “Consumer Secret” you received from Twitter to your EE configuration file:
    # Twitter oAuth config
    $conf['twitter_oauth_consumer_key'] = 'myconsumerkey';
    $conf['twitter_oauth_consumer_secret'] = 'myconsumersecret';
  3.  

  4. To automate the process, create a new template whose contents are a single tag (or use the provided one):

    {exp:auto_tweet:cron}
  5.  

  6. Set up a cron job to ping that URL every hour. For example:

    * */1 * * * wget -q -O /dev/null http://my-site.com/cron/auto-tweet

Notes

Upon installing, the Module will walk you through all of this before allowing you to set it up.
