#991 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add setting enabling/disabling twitter autoposting

In 3.0.5 the twitter module (in "chat" mode) will automatically post anything not recognized as a command as a tweet. This poses a high risk of accidentally posting mistyped commands or wrongly-targeted pastes to potentially thousands of followers. The "undo" command presents only a limited remedy for this.

Therefore, IMHO, the current behavior should not be the default but enable-able via a setting instead.

Yup, I'm planning to add a strict command mode, where posts should be prefixed with the "post" command, that already exists.

changelog:json,978. Will be merged into mainline soon. I'm sticking to the current default.

Flexo, sorry for losing track of your change as well. I need to find a better way to collect patches/contributions because this keeps happening. :-(
