Don't Use TweetLater Blog Feeds Together With The WordPress Twitter Tools Plugin

TweetLater Professional users, please take note of this. It’s important.

If you connect a TweetLater Blog Feed to the RSS feed of your WordPress blog, and you have the WordPress Twitter Tools plugin installed and configured to publish your Twitter tweets as blog posts, mayhem will ensue.

The Twitter Tools plugin is going to grab a tweet from your Twitter account and publish it as a post on your blog.

Then the Blog Feed is going to grab that blog post and post it as a tweet on your Twitter account.

Then the Twitter Tools plugin is going to grab that new tweet from your Twitter account and publish it as a new post on your blog.

Then the Blog Feed is going to grab that new blog post and post it as a new tweet on your Twitter account.

This is going to go on endlessly and you are going to have hundreds of duplicate blog posts on your blog and hundreds of duplicate tweets in your Twitter account.

Either disconnect the Blog Feed, or disable the Twitter Tools plugin on your blog.

    You know, I've always been dreaming about constructing a perpetuum web-mobile :-9 I've even tried this on puprose bei linking a couple of friendfeed and pownce accounts to post to each other, but that didn't quite work out. Thanks for the warning though! 🙂
