With Nice Tweets you get a very convenient & powerful tool, that automatically converts your articles to twitter tweets.

The Nice Tweets extension has been completely overhauled and rebuilt to be better than ever. Seriously robust and compliant with Twitter's OAuth security protocol, there is no need to use an unreliable third-party relay site to send your tweets. All tweets go straight from your site to Twitter!

The Nice Tweets extension is a cool little extension which automatically posts a tweet to your twitter account, every time you save an article. It automatically adds a prefix word or phrase of your choosing to the title of your article, and appends a tinyurl link to the tweet. For example, if you just published an article called “The Coolest Thing Ever,” Nice Tweets would tweet something like “New - The Coolest Thing Ever”
