“Tweet This” Plugin Returned HTTP 404
October 18, 2012 in Wordpress by
If you have Tweet This plugin installed with your wordpress-based web blogs, you may noticed that the plugin no longer sending any tweets since a few days ago. I noticed this issue since a few days ago, when I thought it would just be a temporary error, but it turned to be permanent HTTP 404 error everytime a new tweet needs to be posted.
It’s not only happened with Tweet This, but any other “tweeting” plugins that automatically send tweets everytime new contents/posts published will be facing the same issue.
I also realized that Tweet This no longer appears in the wordpress plugin pages.
So, how to fix Tweet This plugin with HTTP 404 error?
*I recommend you to make changes using cPanel code editor to avoid error I had*
Edit this file
Go to line:89 (or you can find twitter.com as phrase on your browser) and you’ll see this code:
Change http://twitter.com/statuses/update.json to be https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/update.json.
This should fixed your Tweet This plugin with 404 error. I hope it helps!
