Fetches and displays tweets from twitter.com with the Twitter API.
It is easy to set up for WordPress beginners. It does not require you to provide authentication keys.
Media files are automatically displayed such as YouTube videos and photos posted in tweets. You can disable them with the setting.
It allows developers to write additional add-ons and templates. One of the extensions, Feeder, supports feeds so you can subscribe your favorite person’s tweets as RSS, which has become harder as the Twitter API was upgraded and the previous version no longer support tweet feed without authentication keys. With this addon, if you are a programmer, you can import the tweet data as JSON to your application by making the WordPress as own Twitter API server.
If you are a theme developer, you can easily customize the template for the tweet outputs. Just copy the existing template and modify the copied files and rename the template name. Then place the copied folder into the theme folder. And there you go! Your own template will be listed in the plugin’s setting page. This way, when the plugin updates, you won’t loose your modifications.
