OAuth with Twitter

By January 31, 2014 Web News No Comments

Interesting anecdote to relay as I integrate Twitter with WordPress.

Not only did I have to register my mobile phone # to allow posts to go straight to twitter, but I also had to ensure that the server for funwebdev.com has the same time as Twitter’s servers (within some margin for error), otherwise OAuth does not work.

Anyhow the net result to  is that we will be auto-tweeting every-time we update the site.  Ha! I just saw a tweet from Randy working on the site.

This means a new page or post will also create a tweet (and next a Facebook post) to integrate with our social network accounts.

While we may post manually in those Social Networks as well, it’s nice to be able to integrate some automatic tweets in to our workflow.

Happy Auto Tweeting WordPress!
