Have you ever run across the situation where you want your tweets posted directly to your WordPress blog, but you don’t want to post each tweet manually? Of course, there are plugins floating around that will to this for you, WordPress.com users cannot install plugins, and you might prefer a simple solution that adds no additonal load to your server.
There is a free online service called IFTTT (if this then that), which can automate tasks on the internet – including automation between Twitter and WordPress.
Visit ifttt.com/recipes/13273 and sign to an IFTTT account. You may need to link your Twitter and WordPress accounts to IFTTT to continue. Once completed, simply click on the ‘Use Recipe’ button.
Anyway to shorten the time interval??
No, sorry I don’t think so. IFTTT checks your channels every 15 minutes.
OK, thanks. While it appears to work the way it’s supposed to, it unfortunately creates a separate post with 1 tweet in each. Is there a way to get it to add tweets to the same post, one below the next? Thanks so much for the reply!
It looks like you’re looking for the functionality offered by a WordPress plugin. IFTTT is a great service with a nice number of channels, but the functionality for each channel is somewhat limited. If you own a self-hosted WordPress blog then you can install a plugin from the WordPress plugin repository.
