Sends a Twitter™ status update from Workbench.
Upon successful completion of a status update, the feature will be output through the Tweet output port, and will have several new attributes:
_twitter_status_id: Contains the integer ID of the status update.
_twitter_status_truncated: Contains a Boolean string indicating whether or not the status update had to be trimmed to 140 characters.
If a status update could not be sent, the feature will be output through the Error output port, and will have the following new attributes:
_twitter_response: If a response was received from the Twitter server, it will be stored in this attribute.
_twitter_error: If the Twitter response contained an error message, it will be stored in this attribute.
This parameter can be used to enter a status update directly, or to enter the name of an attribute which contains the status update.
If this parameter is set to Yes, the tweet will be tagged with the center point of the feature’s geometry. This will result in the feature geometry being reprojected to LL84, if it is not already in an equivalent coordinate system.
Note: For access outside of your network using a proxy server, use the Network tools in FME Options. From the Workbench menu, select Tools > FME Options > Network. For more information, see "Network" in the FME Workbench Help.
