It's been reported in our Twitter mod thread that "you can only post 10 messages per day onto your Facebook wall with this that is all you can post there .
Not more messages... too bad.." Please check out our Twitter mod b/c we believe it's a very good alternative. By the way, please provide twitterfeed support in your own thread ;-)

2by2host.com team

That's twice you've "suggested" using your mod. To me, that's just plain hijacking a thread. Personally, I don't use your mod because 1) it didn't work, even on a vanilla install, and 2) I thought having your copyright on every page for such an insignificant mod wasn't worth it. That, IMO, should be reserved for large mods like portals, galleries, and such. You are obviously free to do as you wish with your mod, and I am free to not choose it. Don't come into Mr Jinx's thread for his mod trying to sell your own. You have a thread. Provide a good working mod and you can get people to download it that way.

Please count the number of times twitterfeed was used in our thread. The fact that it didn't work for you is very insignificant b/c it does work for everybody else. As far as copyright, we think it's fine.

Your twitter mod doesn't even publish to Facebook, that is why you are calling it "Twitter Mod" Also why are you bringing up Facebook in a topic about Twitter?

Maybe you didn't quote o.O

Are you sure you used the same mod? It does support FB very well.  By the way, this topic is about Twitter or Facebook. Please read it;-)

Why would you quote my post and not answer Sunking's?

maybe it is about Facebook and Twitter but why are you "advertising" your mod in this topic? That's like the inventor of phpBB coming to Simplemachines and posting a comment about their forum script in an SMF improvement topic...

Admit it, you just want better pagerank :D That's why you put that copyright on the footer and try to aggressively advertise your mod and hosting. Just so everyone knows, I removed Twitter mod from both of my Pagerank 2 sites when I upgraded to RC3.

Look at your forum's footer(bottom), it should say RSS, click that and you will be taken to a URL. That URL is your RSS code ;)

I never looked at Twitter API but I wonder if a mod can be hooked to an existing publishing service.

A replacement mod would be really interesting because I really don't wanna give link value to a random site.

What do you mean exactly? A mod that connects directly to the twitter/facebook api, like the 2be2 hosting mod. Or a mod that connects to something like twitterfeed?

A mod that does the same thing - or better - as 2by2host's without the promo and without reliance on a third-party site to push content.

That would be awesome but time consuming, at least for me...

I started the framework for one of these a bit back, will dig it out and see what I can come up with, but I refuse to promise anything, other than if I do end up making this, it'll be a paid mod.

Free for me right :P

Just kidding, but paid is okay considering that there won't be any 3rd part mumbo jumbo used.

Thanks for the tip.

I just started to spread feeds on Facebook and Twitter. We'll see if it creates traffic.

Than I guess it is recommanded to add buttons like "follow us on Twitter and Facebook" on the website.
