SimpleTwitter displays the most recent twitter post (tweet) for a given user. The tweet is cached on the webserver for a number of minutes.
SimpleTwitter allows WordPress blog owners to add Twitter messages to their templates. Once installed, the plug-in is used by adding the following call in a template.
<?php get_twitter_msg(); ?>
This returns the most recent Twitter post found for the configured Twitter user. The message will be cached for the configured number of minutes. After this time, Twitter is checked for new messages. The displayed message is formatted to create hyperlinks for @usernames, URLs, email addresses, and Twitter #topics.
All configuration is done through wp-admin. No code editing is necessary.
SimpleTwitter uses the cURL php libraries to make requests to twitter.com. If cURL is not available this will be indicated in the wp-admin interface will, and the get_twitter_msg() function will return nothing. This should degrade gracefully, so you should not experience php errors.
