I saw biz's posts come through on twitter, looks like this:

Sold 0.2 Lots EURUSD &#64 1.2435 SL &#64 1.2445 TP &#64 1.2425

Think the @ sign is causing trouble.

dang! so it goes change it! right, it looks funny in twitter: Sold 0.2 Lots EURUSD & # 64 1.2435 SL & # 64 1.2445 TP & # 64 1.2425

I put spaces in so it won't go to @ again.

biz,

How many trades you do a day? cause there's a lot coming through. To many...it might be your entire history, or you have a really, really active system.

Apologize for any inconvenience caused.

We have resolved the issue with publishing of trades on twitter that are not from today.

That worked just awesome, posted my last trade closed only and the daily pip count.

The only thing I'm worried about now is that the external applications like Tweetdeck changes the @ into ' &#64'. Not maybe better to just leave a space:

Closed Buy AUDCHF 0.8985 for +105.0 pips, total for today +205.0 pips

No problem.
This might be a bug with Tweetdeck, will look into it. If we can't show the @ sign, we will remove it.

After a quick review, there is in fact an issue with Tweetdeck, so the @ sign was removed.

Thank you.

Ya, I thought the volume would cause trouble. If i were you i'd switch it off and then back on again, in case it cue'd some stuff.

Funny thing is I'm not looking, I got more on my plate than i can handle. I just thought it would be a really awesome tool.

If you have a look at Facebook and you'll see there's a twitter sync app. Now you can broadcast to 250 000 000 people and network it. All it'll take is one person looking for forex to find you, add you as a friend, see your posts. If he has friends who are forex traders or interested in forex they'll all eventually end up seeing your wall with a scrolling record of what you're doing.

Was away when it happened, no biggie, only locked me for 60 minutes.
Nice concept you have there..that i would like to see. I think it will be great if it happens, as it will be much easier to spot the best traders, and the search for investors will be quicker than ever before.

K -so there's a restart procedure.

If you leave your twitter setting on and stop the statement from printing for a while, and you switch it on again, all your trades will go through to twitter at once. And if it's enough trades cooler box for you for one hour.

What you have to do is switch the twitter setting off, switch the statement on, wait 10 min's and then switch twitter back on, it'll pick it up from the last trade and not send out a bunch at once.

Next party trick on this would be pre- and post fixes.

Like Closed Sell $EURCHF 1.5296 for +25.0 pips, total for today +7191.0 pipsor or Closed Sell EURCHF 1.5296 for +25.0 pips, total for today +7191.0 pips $$

If we can maybe put the options in same format as it is now, so we just tick a box and put the symbol in. And then we can put any symbol in, like # or $. That'll take it to the next level. Cause then we can specify where we post to post to in twitter...

Not sure I'm following you here. Do you want to see more information by using several tweets?
Can you elaborate a bit, or maybe give another example?
