    I may be asking a bit much here, but is there a WordPress plugin which will let me tweet to a certain Twitter account depending on the post category?

    For example, if I post in the 'Cat Pictures' category, I would like Twitter user CatPictures to tweet it.
    If I post in the 'Dog Pictures' category, I would like Twitter user DogPictures to tweet it.

    Yup you are asking a little too much. Try hiring a coder if you really need it.

    I guess that happening automatically is not possible... not in any way I would know.

    The only thing I can think of, if you can find a plugin that allows you to connect for example 2 twitter accounts to your site, and then in the post editor, before publishing your post, to tick/untick the account where you want your post to be tweeted on... Although, even if that's possible, it would require a second of your time before publishing a post...

    On second thought, even if there's no plugin that does that (to allow you to connect 2 or more twitter accounts), you can surely get 2 different plugins, connect one account with one plugin and the other with the other, and then simply tick/untick which plugin should share your post before publishing it... It's still not automatic, I'm just trying to give you an idea of how you can get close to what you want... and for free... because probably you could get a plugin that allows you to connect more than 1 twitter accounts to it, but you'd have to upgrade/buy it...

    Oh! I've had SNAP for a while and never knew it could do this. I've just had a look and it seems to do what I want. Thanks
