Returns your Twitter Followers Count. Reduces the Twitter API calls by updating hourly and serving a database cached result in between.
Returns a database stored Twitter Followers Count in plain text or number format. Reduces the Twitter API calls by only updating the followers count hourly and serving a database cached result in between.
You can use the function
<?php followers_count( $id, $default, $echo, $format ); ?> in your theme files. The following is an explanation of the parameters the function excepts.
For example, if I was Psdtuts+ and wanted to echo out a followers count that had a fallback or default followers count in the unlikely event nothing is stored in the database or there is a weird zero result returned, I would do the follow.
<?php followers_count( 'envatographics', 15000 ); ?>
If I wanted to save the count to a variable as a plain integer that I could add to another count or something similar I would do this.
<?php $followers_count = followers_count( 'envatographics', 15000, false, false ); ?>
If I wanted to echo a formatted count form an array of $ids with a fallback, I would do this.
<?php followers_count( array( 'envatographics', 'nettuts' ), 15000 ); ?>
