Makes the links that Twitter Tools posts to Twitter be API-created links so you can track the number of clicks and such via your account.

== Description ==

[Twitter Tools]( is an excellent plugin for posting notifications of new blog posts to [Twitter]( However Twitter Tools just sends the URL to the new post normally which is then shortened by Twitter itself to a []( short link. This is done anonymously.

This plugin will replace the normal URLs sent by Twitter Tools to Twitter with URLs tied to your account. You can then easily track the number of clicks from your profile.


* [Twitter Tools]( be installed and activated
* PHP 5.2.0 or newer (PHP4 is dead anyway)

== ChangeLog ==

**Version 1.1.2**

* Starting with version 2.0, Twitter Tools comes with it's own plugin to allow this. As such, my plugin will now give way to if the other plugin is activated.

**Version 1.1.1**

* Display an error message to the user if they don't meet the minimum PHP and WordPress version requirements.

**Version 1.1.0**

* Minor settings page improvements.

**Version 1.0.0**
