What I am seeing is it is posting the same thread over and over even if there is no new post there since the last RSS update. I am doing something wrong?

This doesn't limit you to X amount per hour.

Doesn't rely on 3rd party site that could go down

Yes, you can put whatever forum ID you want in the RSS feed URL

Change the time in between the task.

AdminCP -> Scheduled Tasks -> vBulletin 2 Twitter

Thank you!

One more question, using on a different site than mentioned above. If I manually run it from scheduled tasks it works. If I don't, it never pulls the feed on it's own. Any thoughts?

make sure you're getting visitors to your site and that $cronimage is in your footer.

You could also try to edit the cron times so it only runs once every 10 minutes or so rather then once a minute.

I've set it up to just read my news forum. When I view what is in that feed, I see the following:

http://www.bostonlove.org/forums/external.php?f=28

There's no sign of that "cdata" code in there.

Here's the actual twitter feed:

Any fix for this? I am also getting it. My feed http://twitter.com/zgeek

ah I see, I've never ran into the limit on my site.
it seems like it would just be spamming twitter if your posting to many

and twitterfeed has never gone done for me, I don't know why anyone would want to make things more complicated :p

I would rather use this mod than twitterfeed because I don't trust anyone with our twitter login details.
However, I would like it to check for new posts in several of our news forums every hour and post them to twitter. We would end up with maybe one new twitter update every couple of days tops, so it wouldn't be spamming.
If your mod can take the new posts from several forums and not create duplicate twitter updates, I would install it.
I appreciate the mod does what you need so you're not particularly motivated to amend it. But a simple table of posted thread ids would prevent duplicates.
Thanks.
