qTwit (for WordPress)

qTwit is a WordPress widget that loads Tweets (from Twitter) on the client-side, via jQuery, as opposed to on the server.

Tweet, tweet! What was that? You have a Twitter too? (Who doesn't tweet these days?) So yeah, if you're here, you probably have a WordPress install as well! Guess what, you've just found the collision! Sure, qTwit isn't the only Twitter widget it out there, but it's claim-to-fame is that it loads your Tweets on the client-side, meaning that it uses the jQuery plugin by Seaofclouds to load your tweets. What does this mean for you? Well, several things:

  • Your tweets are always up-to-date, even with that super-cool caching plugin you just installed!
  • Your server isn't coughing up blood from exhaustion loading the tweets by itself all the time!
  • You can say your blog is powered by jQuery, because everybody knows how legit that is.

AND, we can't forget that Seaofclouds threw in some goodies that pass on to you:

  • Small size and fast download time.
  • Will not slow down or pause your page while Tweets are loading.
  • Automatic linking of @replies to users’ Twitter page.
  • Automatic linking of URLs.
  • Automatic linking of #hashtags, to a Twitter search of all your tags.
  • Converts <3 to a CSS styleable ♥.
  • Makes awesome text, AWESOME text with AWESOMEIZER.

So there you have it, go ahead and click "Install" now!

**If you appreciate this plugin, I (@kylehotchkiss) and Seaofclouds (@seaofclouds) would love a tweet saying so!*
