Nice Article Tweets ComponentPlugin

With Nice Tweets you get a very convenient & powerful tool, that automatically converts your articles to twitter tweets.

The Nice Tweets extension has been completely overhauled and rebuilt to be better than ever. Seriously robust and compliant with Twitter's OAuth security protocol, there is no need to use an unreliable third-party relay site to send your tweets. All tweets go straight from your site to Twitter!

The Nice Tweets extension is a cool little extension which automatically posts a tweet to your twitter account, every time you save an article. It automatically adds a prefix word or phrase of your choosing to the title of your article, and appends a tinyurl link to the tweet. For example, if you just published an article called “The Coolest Thing Ever,” Nice Tweets would tweet something like “New - The Coolest Thing Ever”

I purchased the Nice Tweets Extension and installed it, without reading the instructions.

A bad habbit one develops when working a long time with Joomla.

In the backend of the plugin I had a shock, because there were no options.

So I wrote to the devoper and he helped me immediately in a perfect and pleasant manner.

Like I said before, it turned out that I should learn to read properly.

This extension (plugin and component) works like a charm and the manual is really written in a user-friendly manner.

This extension is worth every single penny and it saves loads of work posting articles on Twitter.

Thanks to Michael, who made my day :)

before i had to upgrade to 1.6, I was using a free version of another Auto Tweet Application, it worked most of the time, then when i upgraded Joomla, I almost had a panic atttack looking for something to replace the one I had. This did the trick. setting it up was pretty easy to set up. though I did most of the goof ups on setting it up because I did, before I read. there is great support for this, and is worth the price for this.

If you have to post then tweet this will save you tons of time. Great job!!

I used an earlier version of Nice Article Tweets and it was very good. The new version takes it to a new level altogether, enabling you to choose when you want to post the tweet (which may not be when you post the Joomla article). The set-up is a bit of a pain, which is entirely due to Twitter's API and NOT this extension, but if you follow the authors' step-by-step instructions exactly, you will get there.

Even though it didn't work straightaway for me due to my somewhat non-default setup, the constant support through the support forums and email helped met nail the problem soon enough. And now it works perfectly!

I was looking for component which would allow me to automatically publish to multiple twitter accounts with the flexibility of publishing the same article to different twitter accounts simultaneously.

Section-A/Category-X to Twitter1
Section-A/Category-Y to Twitter2
Section-A/Category-X and Section-B/CategoryZ to Twitter 3
Section-B/Category-Z and User-23 to Twitter 4

It does it all - Great job - and Great Support

Well done - Greg

This plugin does exactly what it claims to do! It's clean and simple and, with a little support help, infinitely configurable and powerful. This is my second TriniTronic extension purchase [Nice Google Checkout was my first] and I've been pleased with both the functionality of the extensions as well as the value and support. Brilliant work!

Blogging, Tweeting and communicating time should be spent on the content, not trying to figure out how to make components and plug-ins work. This one did it for me on the first shot! No if's, and's or but's required.

All I want to do is get back to the writing! Thanks for good work!
