How can I use the alternate solution (smapsolutions app) for publishing posts on Twitter

Note: Twitter suspended SMAPSolution’s Twitter App access to the Twitter API without warning. As a result, SMAPsolution’s service for Twitter is currently broken.
We are awaiting a response from Twitter and the access tier upgrade is not working for us. However we are not going to upgrade to the enterprise level which is not at all affordable, so we are requesting our users to use  {PERMALINK} in message format to display a preview of posts(with Twitter cards enabled) while sharing to Twitter as media upload will take more than 3 API calls. If any of the users want to use the media upload options,request to use their own app  (with the appropriate access tier ) in Twitter settings.
Currently, we are not allowing new users and the purchase option for Twitter is temporarily disabled.Hopefully, we can resume it soon.

We are introducing an alternate solution where you can use an already approved app to auto post your wordpress posts to Twitter.

Please note that “This solution is a paid service and the price starts from USD 10 per year”.

The procedure is given below.

Step 1: Premium Plugin

In the Twitter account section in the plugin, please select the approved app option

Please enter other details and save them.

Now click on the authenticate button.

It will display a popup and login to your Twitter account.

Step 1: Free Plugin

Please select the approved app option and click on the connect to xyzscripts account button.

Now it will display a popup to login to xyzscripts or register to xyzscripts.

If you are creating a new account, it will send a confirmation mail to the registered email and click on the confirmation link.

After confirming the email, please save it and click on the “authorize” button.

Step 2: Applicable to both Premium and Free Plugins

Now you can purchase the SMAP Package. The price depends on the number of Twitter accounts, API calls per hour per account.

For publishing a simple text message, it will take 1 API call, the Upload image option will take 2  API calls and the attach link option takes 1 API call.
