ExpressionEngine twitter module scheduled status updater

Note: re-written

Someone asked me for ExpressionEngine module by which he will able to update twitter status from EE admin panel, can store few messages and can scheduled the stores messages by which his twitter status will be updated automatically time to time. If you run with schedule and let people around you about your status – you can use this module, store message for time and get them updated about you using twitter micro blogging. I’ve done this and want to share you the module.


Download the module form github from
http://github.com/appskitchen/mod.twitter.ee_addon

or
Git command line –

git clone git://github.com/appskitchen/mod.twitter.ee_addon.git twitter

After get it, install it, update the preferences like some other modules of expressionengine. Here are the instructions if you are new to EE module installation –
http://expressionengine.com/docs/index.html#modules_docs

After install it, now update the preferences(Twitter username, password, and few more settings). It’ll be ready to update your status instantly after update the preferences. Create few messages to update your twitter status on scheduled time. Now you have to execute something in cron. Click on home tab for this module, now you will see a url above an textarea which will something like http://www.mydomain.com/index.php?ACT=20, copy this url and put it on cron with expected interval(usually for every 10 minutes). So it will update your twitter status with you stored message on time regularly.

  1. firstly, internet and secondly it is talking about marketing.
    But to create a good campaign you need o have a good budget according to your business industry.
    However, knowing where to find the best keywords research course
    does not guarantee anything. They are there to brainstorm with
    you, to come up with “out of the box” ideas and to get traffic to your site and make your dream business a success.

    Although it is very important to your overall marketing plan that they are still only
    a temporary traffic source and must never be the only reliable.
    Almost any business can take advantage of web affiliate marketing.
    The first is to organize all those tasks you need to do.
    We want to get our message in front of our target audience, correct.
