Fritz Wagner created the topic: Autotweet sends FIRST saved version of articles
I have a problem because I am sending out garbled messages (nonsense text).
When a new article is submitted to the website, it is first pasted into a template that has fragments and blanks. The heading or subheadings in the article may not be finalized at the time the article is saved for the first time!
It may take hours and hours and many saves before the top lines in the article are finally set.
But Autotweet takes the first version that is saved and sends that out. Here is an example from Tuesday night: "from The Collected Works--In SeundPart 1– Thession-- Eric Voegelin visited etc etc"
--These opening lines make almost no sense.
The thing is, anyone editing online (in JCE, for instance) is going to save regularly so that work is not lost when something bad happens (And something bad happens often enough!)
I looked at a lot of documentation to find the answer, but either I missed it or it isn't there.
1. Can I edit the Autotweet message before it goes out to make sure it reflects the final product? I don't see where this can be done.
2. Is there a DB file I can edit if nothing is editable in the Admin backend? I would rather not, of course.
I don't want to turn off the Autopost plugin. I would forget to manually post and I don't have time to compose a manual post for each article.
This is a fine program that I haven't quite mastered yet!

That's easy! I can do that!
One more question then: If the day after an article is posted I find a typographical error, and I fix it and save the article, will there be an immediate automatic retweet? I would want to avoid a retweet for a spelling correction.
