    hey; thanks for the great extension; very useful. Just for info: I had trouble using this at work; I ran wireshark and found the problem was that the proxy was rejecting the packet because there was no content length set. I fixed it by opening the xpi file and changing the following code from:

    req.onreadystatechange = getTwitterResponse; req.open(“POST”,”http://”+username+”:”+password+”@twitter.com:80/statuses/update.xml?status=”+status, true);
    req.send(null)

    to:

    req.onreadystatechange = getTwitterResponse;
    req.open(“POST”,”http://”+username+”:”+password+”@twitter.com:80/statuses/update.xml?status=”+status, true);
    req.setRequestHeader(“Content-length”, “0”);
    req.send(null)

    this seems to work fine.

    You might have a better way of fixing this; I just thought I’d let you know what worked for me

    Thanks again

    Nice extension. I’m new to Twitter, and was thinking “this really needs a FF extension to allow me to send a tweet without going to the Twitter webpage”; and voila!

    One curiosity: For some reason, the character countdown decrements by 20 extra characters when there is a URL in the URL bar. As soon as I type the second ‘/’ in ‘http://’, the char count drops from 134 to 113. I am no programmer, but when I looked in the source, I saw that ‘count’ is calculated two different ways, so I assume this is intentional; is it something required for sending URLs to Twitter?

    Anyway, great job and thanks for the extension.

  3. Dan: the issue you’re seeing is because TwitterBar inserts “Current Browsing:” in front of any URLs you send to Twitter. This accounts for the 20 character change.

    Note: You can change the “Currently Browsing:” text by changing the value of “extensions.twitter.web” in about:config.

  4. Hi, When i try to post I get an error that says “could not authenticate you” but I’ve verified my password a ton of times, I cant find the problem :(

    Hey,
    very sweet! Ich hoffe, dass ich nun öfter Zwitschern werde….

    Thanks for this very useful plugin!

  6. Stuart says:

    For some reason my address bar height has now changed by about 10px in height, even the favicon is stretched. When I disable twitterbar it comes good again. Any thoughts as to why the look of my address bar might have changed?

    Regards.

  7. Christopher Hitchcott says:

    Hey, just wondering if there is a shortcut to post to twitter, rather than having to click the icon? Perhaps you could add an option to customise this in later versions; it’d be nice to just be able to [alt-return].

  8. Susan says:

    HI,
    I’m trying to install the twitter bar extension on the Flock Browser and it’s not working. I know that it does work with this extension as many people who are doing the 30 Day Challenge with Ed Dale are using it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Susan

  9. This looks like a handy extension. Any chance that you would support specifying the website API root in the future? This would make the bar work for any laconi.ca based server (such as identi.ca), which are compatible with Twitter API. For example, for identi.ca, posting is as simple as changing [http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml] to [http://identi.ca/api/statuses/update.xml].

  10. Hi! Nice addon, really enjoying it!
    But a thought, is it possible, when posting only a url, to change the “Currently reading: ” part with the title of the page you’re posting?

  11. I love this add-on, but uninstalled it when I upgraded to FF 3.0.1. When I tried to reinstall it, it now says that it’s not compatible with FF3. But I want it!

  12. rob says:

    I cannot get it to install on FF 3.0.3, instead getting the Error 203 thing, which I’ve seen before with other extensions too. I tried the fix as detailed here:
    Unable to install themes or extensions – Firefox – MozillaZine Knowledge Base

    Delete
    “extensions.ini extensions.cache extensions.rdf” and restart FF.

    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions_-_Firefox#Corrupt_extension_files

    Still no go at the AddOns page, nor with File Open the xpi downloaded from Softpedia. Any idea if it has a conflict with some other extension?

  13. I love this add-on. The only thing I don’t like is that it somehow interferes with the Blank Canvas Gmail Signatures add-on. When TwitterBar is enabled, the Blank Canvas Gmail Signatures add-on doesn’t work.

    Any thoughts on that? Thanks again for a great add-on for us Twitter users.

    Great app. Two suggestions: 1. A record/pause setting which tweets address bar on every change. 2. Tweet search bar contents for when a search is started from the search bar. Thanks.

  15. Hey, great extension. I am new to Twitter, but TwitterBar is really THE thing, for me.
    Also, like Vick, I would love to know, how to access “Post to Twitter” icon from keyboard. If it’s not avaible now, maybe, Christopher, you should consider putting it in a new version.

  16. Hello. Thanks for the plugin it’s very useful.

    I have modified the file twitterbar.js archive for change “Currently browsing…” message.

    It could be good idea if everybody could change it by a more simple way.

    Best regards.

  17. Newcomer says:

    This addon posts without asking for confirmation. That should be fixed because it’s too easy to post without intention.

  18. Chris – love twitterbar!

    One question – is it possible to configure to use twurl rather than tinyurl as the URL shortening service. I’d like to take advantage of the ability of twurl to track clicks.

    Ian

  19. Nice extension, unfortunately for me, the “–post” shortcut is short-circuited by one of my “must-have” extensions – SuperDragAndGo (version 0.2.6.3-directional) Weird.

  20. giving your app a whirl today…
    did 3 as of this writing and its so far okay…
    will get back to ya— if I feel its not up to stuff…

    peace…greggace

  21. Jeketem says:

    Could you produce a similar extention using the Remember the Milk api.
    I love the simplicity of your application but i cant get RTM and Twitter working together.

  22. Thanks for maintaining this. It’s a superb FF addon. So much easier than having to cut’n’paste URLs from FF into Tweetdeck to be able to tweet them.

  23. Thanks – TwitterBar is for me, by far, easiest way for me to post to twitter.

    I use it along with scripts I’ve written in AutoIt. If you could build in a URL-shortener it would be outstanding.

  24. The new Auth system is broke, EVERY TIME I try to tweet it ask me to authorize, I do and it doesn’t remember. I’ve tried this on both my mac and windows systems. Great/useful tool before you added Oauth.

  25. Thanks for creating TwitterBar – I find it indispensable. I just installed the new version, and I see that you have migrated from tinyurl to is.gd. Fine. But seeing that change made me wonder: can you hook up bit.ly instead? bit.ly lets you track the clicks on your links, which is definitely worth something to me.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    – Mike

  26. Todd says:

    I’m having a the authorization problem too. It continually asks me to reauthorize twitterbar to use my account. Is there a way to solve this? Sorry if I am missing something obvious.

  27. I didn’t read all comments above, maybe i’ll repeat somebodies suggestion, but i didn’t see this feature in the current version.

    I think its a good idea to have an option when submitting the tweet to include the TITLE tag of the web page (link) that we submit.

    Thanks

  28. millionart says:

    Bug report:
    the “before url” in options dialog cant input chinese or japanese, maybe it doesnt support utf8.
    Some wish:
    let me choose and change some shortcut key to post.

    thanks.

  29. I have Firefox 3.0.7, i gives error:
    “TwitterBar encountered an error (401) ”
    I think its because , i didnt sign in..
    How to sign in to my account through TwitterBar.
    When i click “Reset Authorization Settings” in options. nothing happens..

  30. I am having a lot of trouble with this add on since the ‘upgrade’ – keeps requiring reauthorisation and stalls regularly. Is it possible to revert to the previous version. Else will have to be uninstalled – also crashes Firefox occasionally which is strange.

    Roy

  31. Thanks much! I enjoy Twitterbar a lot. I have also had trouble with authenticating, though. I’ve found that if I log into twitter first, then install the add-on, the authentication works fine.

    I’d also like to second the option to turn off URL shortening.

  32. max says:

    Since v 2.x I can’t use twitterbar on my two pcs anmore.. up to that point of time I had it installed on my laptop and my office pc. however somehow it only works now on one computer at a time. so i have to authorize the pc i use every single time again and again.. that sucks. is there any other solution for this?

  33. Hey. Great idea. I am trying to use it and this is the message that keeps coming up:

    Invalid / expired Token
    /statuses/update.xml

    what I am doing wrong – you can email me.

  34. The “Invalid / expired Token” error was due to a combination of a bug in TwitterBar and an API change that Twitter made. You can download an update to TwitterBar that fixes the bug at http://is.gd/rIsP or you can wait for Mozilla to approve the update and have Firefox download it automatically, although this may take a couple of days.

  35. Henning Ulfarsson says:

    Hi,

    I regularly use TwitterBar but with the newest update the support for Icelandic letters (æ, ö, á, í, etc) is gone. Any chance it can be fixed?

    Best,
    Henning

  36. I am trying to enter into twitter but when trying to register, I am told that my user name is invalid! Please help!! xXx P.S. I am not really computer literate! xXx

  37. Thanks for the 2.1.2 update it fixes the token error temporarily for me, but when I get twitterbar setup on one machine then get home and use my laptop, I get the token error again. Even though I have 2.1.2 installed. Is there something I can do?

  38. Howdy Chris,
    TwitterBar ROCKS. I’ve used it a for quite while now and the time you’ve spent on it is so awesome. I noticed that after I upgraded, long URLs are automatically shortened using is.gd. I’m a heavy user of bit.ly for it’s analytics (which also rock) and am wondering if there is a way to either turn *off* the is.gd shortening service OR, even better, have it use bit.ly instead (with my account).

    I’d be happy to provide any feedback, testing on teh awesome next version of TwitterBar
    -m

  39. I’ve been using Twitthat! for a while now but find Twitterbar a much nicer integration & feels cleaner. Plus it also takes up one less space on my Bookmark Toolbar :)

  40. sorry but version 2.1.2 is still giving me the problem. It works under OSX but on my vista64 laptop it says it’s unauthorized. yes I reinstalled it twice it still will not work. and yes it IS authorized.. my OSX machine at work is operating perfectly.

  41. For someone who asked above, keyboard lovers can just type –post in the address bar after their tweet to send it. Note that tweet is posted AS SOON AS you type in –post i.e. no need to press enter.

  42. Just a quick clarification, there are TWO hyphens required before post. For some reason, the two hyphens appear like a single long hyphen in posts above.

  43. I like it but it removes some icons (& therefore their funnctionality) from the address bar, namely the Xmarks icon & the RSS icon for the Newsgator add-on.

    That’s a deal-breaker for me.

  44. red says:

    so this is just like Twitlet huh…………………..

    i use now 3 types or 3rd party Twitter app..the amazing TweetDeck, Twitlet (in my Google Chrome) and now Twitbar…(in Firefox)

  45. Anonymous says:

    version 2.1.2 is still giving me the problem. It works under sabayon and firefox 3.0.8 but i can reach the authorization from twitter or wathever… yes I reinstalled it twice it still will not work. and also i reset the autorization from twitter… but it’s not working…

    :(

  46. every useful tool, however is there a short cut key to post twit without having to use the mouse to hover on the icon and click to post?

  47. Milo says:

    Great idea, but the one-click tweet isn’t usable without the ability to dynamically include the title of the url you’re tweeting. Why would anyone reading that tweet click on a shortened url with no description? Failsauce.

  49. Spritemoney says:

    Wow! Really useful. Although i wanna use another url shortern thing, can i do that? It looks like I can’t. Now i’m updating more on twitter because of tweetbar

  51. George says:

    Twitterbar used to work for me, but after an update it no longer will connect. Whenever I try to post I get an error box that says:

    Twitter responded with an error (401):
    Failed to validate oauth signature or token

    I am running FF 3.1.10. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Twitterbar. I revoked and un-revoked access to Twitterbar on the Twitter site. Anyone have suggestions on how to get it to post?

    Thanks!

  52. George says:

    An update on comment 146. Twitterbar works fine from the browser on my laptop, but not from the browser on my desktop. Is there some kind of problem trying to access twitter from 2 different computers via Twitterbar? Thanks!

  53. Thanks for this extension. It’s the best UI for entering tweets as far as I’m concerned.

    I had some issues with authentication after recent extension upgrades. It was complaining about invalid oauth token. Resetting the authentication from the preferences didn’t help (despite the oauth roundtrip it triggers) however the following did fix things for me:

    1 go to about:config
    2 type twitter in the search field
    3 note that the twitter bar oauth token setting is NOT set, despite several oauth roundtrips to twitter
    4 right click and reset all the twitterbar entries (empties them I assume)
    5 restart browser, it will ask to authenticate and this time actually stores the token

    Done!

    A second minor bug: the spinning icon spins forever after failed authentication even though it is no longer waiting for a response from the server.

  54. Great, thanks for this program, I love how it’s lightweight. Ok it’s no TweetDeck, but then again, sometimes I just want to post a tweet and not have to load up that hog of a program and get all my updates from elsewhere. So twitter bar does the job. Love it – Thanks. Ollie – Coolest geek on the net!

  55. AJ Armstrong says:

    What a great extension. I hooked this up to my Twitter account and hooked my Twitter up to my Facebook account, and now I’m updating both at once.

    -Thanks.

  56. Love the app. Having a couple issues though. On my wife’s computer, it continually says it can’t do the oauth thing. I have tried some of the tricks I have read around here, but to no avail. It worked fine on my computer. Incidentally, we are both using the latest macs with the latest OS, for what it’s worth.

    Second, when the window pops up asking if I want the social search thing, I hit cancel, thinking that this is referring to the magenta colored box in my url bar. If it is, I don’t need that and don’t want any more things in that bar than is necessary. But regardless, it still shows up. Thoughts?

    So, until I can get those two things settled, I am back to version 1. I preferred the simple dot idea too – doesn’t have to be a grey dot or anything, but I would like something more generic.

    And for those who think this app is too simple, that’s exactly why I love it so much. I don’t want to open up two or more apps to tweet.

    Oh ya, I would also prefer a tiny url creator with stats, as others have mentioned.

    Keep it up! Great add on.

  57. Daniel B. says:

    To George, comment 153, I have the same problem. Can’t figure out what’s the problem, so I haven’t tested this add-on yet.

  58. Lazy people LOVE your add on. I am a lazy person. I LOVE Your Add on! Because of research and those following me on Twitter, I have to pass on vital information we come across. Simply using the bar means I do not have to constantly log into my page when on the Net. One of the best add ons Firefox was lucky to get! Thanks for the hard work.

  59. Thanks for an excellent, lightweight, easy to use extension. TwitterBar is now my primary way to post quick notes or Web pages.

    I’m a bit disappointed that you moved from is.gd to .tk (Tweak) for URL shortening. I realize you’re saving ~3 characters, but I’ve been using is.gd for a very long time and prefer it over all the other shortening services. Perhaps in a future release, you’d consider making this a configurable option?

  60. Hi, I don’t know if what I’m going to say is doable, but I had and idea you may like.

    When you click the ‘Post to twitter’ button, instead of a confirmation, could you put a space to write, so you can personalise each tweet??

    Just an idea ;)

  61. Yeah – I am after something like Wisdoom too. Like, when you post is there a variable that could be used for the (shruken) URL.

    e.g. “Reading and interest post about the excellent TwitterBar.. %%”

    When %% would be swapped out with the URL.

    Often the page title ($$) is not that great a summary of the page content.

  62. Just to answer my own question posted above, and perhaps yours @wisdoom

    All you have to do to post a URL (shortened) with a personal message is type your message in front of the URL, leaving the URL in place. Click post and on twitter you will see:
    “My personal message http://12345.tk

  63. Robert Wictorzon says:

    Great plugin! I just want to know why you changed the short url handler? Those %¤#&@.tk takes forever to load, if they load at all. I’ve been using Twitterbar for some time, and I haven’t noticed this problem before. Please change it back! :)

  64. I’ve been using Twitterbar for months with no problem and love it. I installed some update to Firefox last week and the post icon disappeared from my browser address bar. I’ve tried uninstalling, reinstalling it and disabling my other add-ons to determine the problem and nothing. I’m running Windows Vista and Firefox 3.0.11. Any ideas on how to fix it?

  65. Twitter bar is one of my all time favourite plugins! Makes it so much easier. Only drawback is that I get all confused using computers and browsers where it’s not installed as i take it for granted in all my work locations ;-)

  66. Tina says:

    My twitterbar is not working. (re-installed, no help)
    It says
    I wonder if this is because I changed the firefox address bar search default setting last week… (running with windows XP and FF 3.5)
    any advice? thanks in advance.

  67. Great extension. Must say.I was not posting on twitter just because it was too much to post a tweet especially when you are on slow connection. But after getting this extension all my tweets are from TwitterBar. Lot more add-ons are released to post directly from firefox, but this one is my fav. till date.

  68. Robert says:

    Hi

    Great tool!! Is it possible to managed 2 twitter account with this tool. I like to switch between the two accounts….

    Thx

  69. as 177 Rachel sais: with FF 3.5 Twitterbar post icon disappeared and I have done all thats possible to fix it.
    Me too running Vista.
    I´m soooo sad…
    help me, mr tweetbar :)

  70. Hey Chris, great tool.

    I have recently changed my Twitter name and now when I post via TB it is not posting to my Twitter account.

    Is there a way to change the name on TB?

    Thanks!

  71. The new Auth system is broke, EVERY TIME I try to tweet it ask me to authorize, I do and it doesn’t remember. I’ve tried this on both my mac and windows systems. Great/useful tool before you added Oauth.

  72. Nima says:

    Hi,
    I use Firefox 3.5.1 but I receive the error 401. What should i do? I also couldn’t use the “Reset Authorization Setting”
    Help me plz

    Thanks!

  74. M) says:

    Great handy tool. Thanks so much. FYI, I hid the icon in the address bar and then brought it back and now it sits on the left of the address. :/ Fix this if you can.

    I have two ideas to share as well. Consider showing the icon only when typing in the address bar. Also, as mentioned in an earlier post, consider creating a shortcut key instead of –post. Like ALT enter. My fingers are twitching to have this.

  75. Katherine says:

    What do I need to do in order to authorize the Twitter Bar to access my twitter account in order to be able to post??

    Please let me know ASAP.

    Thanks.

  76. Randall says:

    Hi,
    I have firefox 3.5.1 too but I can’t running Twitterbar. I’ve tryed to download and install it 4-5-6 times but nothing happened… Restarted firefox every time and already my PC.
    Can somebody help me?

    Thanks in advance,

  78. Thanks for this lovely addon. I currently use twitterfox which sits on the status bar, and think it’s a good idea to try yours and see how they compare.

    Thanks again for sharing :)

  79. Larry says:

    Let me just say that I love this add-on. It has become the de facto manner by which I bookmark interesting web sites. One small annoyance though…whenever I post to Twitter, usually by clicking the address bar (+) icon, a new Firefox tab automatically opens up to show me the tweet at my Twitter home page. Is there a way to suppress this from happening? All I really want to do most of the time is tweet away and not get distracted/interrupted.

  80. #196 Randall. I have firefox 3.5.2 and initially thought that the addon could not be found. It is in the address bar. You’ll see the blue twitter icon, just click that and you would be required to authorize postings to you twitter account- just once. Then write your tweet and click the tweeter icon and you are done.

    Thanks Chris for an awesome tool!

  81. I love it. I just recently found out how much better firefox is as opposed to IE. And then I received an added surprise with all the add-on features that are available. Great work. Thanks so much

  82. Bob Borghart says:

    Is it possible to ad the active url when posting a tweet from Twitterbar? One can click on the twitter icon to post the url which results in a ‘currently browsing’ text followed by the link on Twitter or write a tweet from the Firefox adress bar without the url of the webpage, but is it possible to combine both in the current version of Twitterbar? Being able to write a header or subject line that inserts the webpage?

  83. Hey!

    I LOVE this Add-On an insane amount, it has really helped with my productivity (don’t have to bring up a new window to tweet a new resource). I’m wondering if you have plans to make one for Google Chrome? I’m considering switching (I downloaded it) but the lack of twitterbar makes me a little doubtful about how useful it will be for me.

    Thanks!

  84. Arkantamis says:

    Hello! Excellent App… But it’s still having the problem with the XML options dialog… It was working anyway, but I updated to the last version (2.7.3) and the app didn’t work anymore… =(

    Some ideas? (I’m using Win7 and the last version of Firefox…)

  85. All is good except a major problem these days.
    If I try a really long tweet which is beyond 160 char (or some) limit then bar does not complain that twitter has refused and you even looses the tweet from the address bar. now there is no way to get what you were writing and it was saved nowhere.

  87. Suggestion says:

    Hi, thank for the great application.
    Could you please add a new function. That is a notation that a webpage has been added to twitter already so one doesn’t post the same address to Twitter twice.

    Let’s me explain. I used to open many webpages in tabs and switch back and forth all the time. I post the address of the interesting webpages to Twitter through your application. Sometimes, I post an address twice because there’s no sign that the webpage (in some tabs) has been posted to Twitter.

    Thank you very much and happy holidays

    I preffered the t symbol instead of this stupid bird that I almos can’t diferentiate in my adress bar

    I would be cool if you return to the t symbol or if you give us the chance to choose which symbol we like the most

    thanks!

  89. Noraldo says:

    Ok, the URL shortener with bit.ly, doesn’t appear to work on FF 3.5.7. Not sure how it should behave: should it shorten the URL as I paste it in, or while it’s sending the tweet? It’s not doing either, so..

  90. Grande componente aggiuntivo! Mi piace molto ed è molto comodo!!!
    Great add-ons! I like very much and it’s very useful!!!
    Thanks.

    Bye bye from Italy,

  91. Is it possible to ad the active url when posting a tweet from Twitterbar? One can click on the twitter icon to post the url which results in a ‘currently browsing’ text followed by the link on Twitter or write a tweet from the Firefox adress bar without the url of the webpage, but is it possible to combine both in the current version of Twitterbar? Being able to write a header or subject line that inserts the webpage?

  92. I don’t know if this is the correct place to talk about bug/features of Twitterbar, sorry if not.

    The new functionality of posting with command –post is AWESOME, but, if you post using it and your tweet exceed 140 characters and then you cancel the prompt message (because you want to correct the twweet) you can’t do this, the tweet is erased after cancel the prompt.

    Regards

  93. Suggestion says:

    Hello,
    Right after posting an URL (called X) to Twitter, you switch to another tab with URL Y; the posted URL X will be placed in adress-bar where it must be URL Y.

    Is it a logical mistake?

    Thank for your great application.

  94. A suggestion says:

    Could there be an option to only shorten links if the message is too long? I like to post the original link if it will fit and this isn’t too much ask (plus I really wonder about all these url shorteners… do the links ever expire? over time, they’ll just get longer and longer if they don’t purge or recognize when the same link was already used… try it. You can get as many different links to the same page with any service… they don’t recognize that they already have a link for _____ website).

  95. Pepe says:

    Hy Chris

    TwitterBar is a cool Firefox Add-on.

    Unfortunatly there are still bugs in case you have more than one twitter account registered in TwitterBar.
    I have two twitter accounts registered and I have the following problems:
    1) If the text is to long (longer than 140) and I send it two my _second_ twitter account, I receive first an error message and afterwards its posted on my _first_ twitter account.
    2) If I post a message with TwitterBar to my _second_ twitter account, sometimes it will be posted to both twitter accounts.

    I hope you can fix these problems.

    Cheers, Pepe

    FF 3.6.4 on Linux, trying to authorize my account fails with “TwitterBar encountered an error (401):

    Have tried removing TwitterBar and reinstalling. Twitter says TwitterBar has R/W access to my Twitter account. Trying to send a tweet just hangs with something in the TwitterBar status section saying “Authorizing”, tweet never goes. Even removed my account and added it back, still gets same message.

    What to do?

    After posting the current url, the text in the address box is not restored.

    It either goes blank and displays “Search Bookmarks and History”,
    or it displays the url from another tab, usually the first tab, or tab(1)
    if the tab order has been re-arranged.

    Otherwise, it’s great, thanks.

  98. love the idea of this… can’t get it to work though. stops at the authorisation process with the following error

    “TwitterBar can’t contact Twitter because Twitter is down.”

    twitter does not look down to me. any help?

    Is anybody using on windows firefox 3.6.8 ?
    Mine doesn’t work anymore. ‘Authorizing’ on address bar forever.
    It worked on 1 or 2 months ago though.

    Is there a way to edit the text that will be posted when I want to tweet the page I am currently reading? I’m not talking about the using $$ in the options, but rather a way to edit the proposed text before it is actually posted to twitter. Maybe I don’t want the page title or only want a portion of the page title. Maybe I want to add a customized message per tweet. Is this possible?

  101. It seems smart enough to manage the character counter to know to reduce any long URL to the shortener’s equivalent length. So simply pasting a long URL will show the character length countdown as 119 (maybe off by one, but fine). That’s a great feature! I notice that the counter is *not* smart enough to recognize ” –post” on the end so if you’re using that method to post

    **you’ll need to remember to not worry about your length limit until the indicator says “-7″**.

    I don’t think this will be too easy to fix; maybe logic is “if at EOL and last current token starts with — then stop counting towards count.” Anyway, not a big deal but does need to be remembered by those of us who regularly hit the 140 mark. Thanks for a great tool!

  102. hey there. one thing if you can do. When there is only one account use. Jut allow it to post directly rather than prompting or letting me write my big @username.
    else its awesome

    Thank you

  103. Would it be possible in a future update, to have a box pop up when tweeting a URL, allowing you to view and edit the tweet before sending it to twitter?

    Thanks for the great add-on :)

    I get this message

    WINDOWS XP PRO SP3, Firefox 3.6.13,

    TwitterBar ha encontrado un error (401):

    Failed to validate oauth signature and token

  105. Could there be an option to only shorten links if the message is too long? I like to post the original link if it will fit and this isn’t too much ask (plus I really wonder about all these url shorteners… do the links ever expire? over time, they’ll just get longer and longer if they don’t purge or recognize when the same link was already used… try it. You can get as many different links to the same page with any service… they don’t recognize that they already have a link for _____ website).

  106. Hi,

    I have three Twitter acoounts. Everytime when I try to connect with twitter I get the following message :

    {“request”:”\/statuses\/update.json”,”error”:”Could not authenticate with OAuth.”

    Ofcourse I have these three accounts installed in TwitterBar. I can see this. I get the opportunity to select the specific account making the connection with one of these three accounts.

    Please can you help me?

    Regards,
    Jilles
