Allows authors to showcase one or more Twitter accounts. Useful for creating Follow Friday lists in posts or pages. Now with @Anywhere support.
Just enter one or more twitter users in the shortcode
[ff xxx...]. Example:
[ff tcorp theemperfect]
This will create two user boxes for the Twitter users "tcorp" and "theemperfect".
You can list as many users as you wish, but keep in mind that Twitter has a 150 requests/hour limit! If you create lists that have more than 150 users, the plugin will only list the first 150 users. You can always refresh the page an hour later and see if more users have been added to your post/page. The shape of the user boxes depend on the template you have chosen in the admin panel.
As of version 2.0.0 this WP Twitter Users supports Twitter's @Anywhere platform. This means that you can enhance Twitter @usernames on your blog or site with the @Anywhere service using this plugin. No shortcode is needed. Simply configure the options in the admin panel.
In order to take advantage of this feature, you must first register an API key with Twitter. You can do this by going to the WP Twitter Users settings page and clicking on the link labeled "Twitter API key".
Once you have entered your valid API key, you must set the options you wish to use.
Autolink @usernames to Twitter profiles.
Create hovercards for @usernames.
