    With posting news, events, and blogs on your website, how do you keep up with adding a Twitter to the mix? Well, hitting two birds with one stone of course (one of which being a Twitter bird)! I have created a plugin will help you merge your existing processes of posting blogs, news, and events with automatically posting to Twitter with the same click!

    Features:

    • Post news, events, and blogs from Sitefinity to Twitter simply by checking off a box!
    • Uses the latest, next generation Twitter API
    • Uses the highly secured OAuth for authenication
    • Post to multiple Twitter accounts simultaneously
    • Add prefix or hash tags to your posts
    • URL is automatically shorten via Bit.ly service

    Screenshots

    News, events, and blogs will have a new Social Media section where you can select as many Twitter accounts you would like to post to

    Using OAuth standards, the sign on procedure will take you directly to Twitter for authentication. The Sitefinity Connector will request your permission to perform the tasks needed to post.

    A successful login and granting of permissions will pass back a secure Twitter token to allow Sitefinity to update your Twitter status.

    Upon creation of your post, the Twitter posted to will be listed for your reference. A shorten URL via Bitly is automatically done as well.
