  • There is a possibility of not operating correctly when changing the resource of this component like Japanese localization etc.
  • Please attest it again after releasing the cooperation of the application program of foo_twit_post once on the Twitter side when it is not possible to post because of the error such as "Could not authenticate with OAuth" or "Incorrect Signature" etc.
  • When posting to Twitter, the displayed application program name becomes "foo_twit_post" (It is not "foo_twitter_post"). This is because it becomes impossible to use the character string of "twitter" for the application program name by the change of the specification on the Twitter side. Please acknowledge it though it is an origin where confusion is caused.


You are using the component at your own risk. The developer is not responsible for any damages.
