    As title says, I'm trying to find a way to make a twitter account tweet once a new thread is posted to a specific section.

    Anyone got some clue of how to do this?

    Twitter has a pretty good API that you can reference. However, it is limited to a certain number of calls per hour, so if your board is really active you might want to be careful.

    I have the Featured Threads add-on. I use the RSS feature with that combined with Twittered to automatically tweet threads which I feature on my forums.

    That's more or less what I'm trying to do. Using XenPorta to have a news page, and I want to tweet out every time I post a new news thread.
