    A couple of days ago my WP to Twitter plugin started to give me this error:

    "One or more of your last posts has failed to send it's status update to Twitter. Your Tweet has been saved in your post custom fields, and you can re-Tweet it at your leisure.

    The query to the URL shortener API failed, and your URL was not shrunk. The full post URL was attached to your Tweet. Check with your URL shortening provider to see if there are any known issues. [Cli.gs Blog] [Bit.ly Blog]


    Sorry! I couldn't get in touch with the Twitter servers to post your new blog post. Your tweet has been stored in a custom field attached to the post, so you can Tweet it manually if you wish!"


    Am i doing something wrong?? :confused:

    It's probably because Twitter ended support for Basic Authentication (which is what a lot of tools and plugins were using) on June 1. Instead, they are using OAuth now:

    Twitter Tools still seems to be updating my WP posts. I guess they updated it to support OAuth.
