Register the bundle

# Usually your app/AppKernel.php
<?php
// ...
class AppKernel extends Kernel
{
    public function registerBundles()
    {
        $bundles = [
            // ...
            new \MartinGeorgiev\SocialPostBundle\SocialPostBundle(),
        ];
        return $bundles;
    }
    // ...
}

Post a test message

# Some Symfony container aware class
<?php
//...
$message = new \MartinGeorgiev\SocialPost\Message('your test message');
$container->get('social_post')->publish($message);

Additional help

Twitter has limited features for tweet customisation. This means that for tweets only message and link values (MartinGeorgiev\SocialPost\Message instance) will be used.

Facebook doesn't support non-expiring user access tokens. Instead, you can obtain a permanent page access token. When using such tokens you can act and post as the page itself. More information about the page access tokens from the official Facebook documentation. Some Stackoverflow answers (here and here) also can of help.
