    Hi Guys,

    Can you help, maybe I am being stupid?

    How do I set this up to use other peoples twitter feeds? I have set it up so I can use my own account, but I'm sorry, I cant see how to set it up to use other peoples?

    Can you give step-by-step instructions.

    Apologies if I am missing something obvious.

    Part of Twitter's new system is that you have to authenticate requests. The only way to do this would be to create a list under your account containing that person, and then use that instead of the username.

    Aaron: I tried making a list with just one person in it and changing the widget to use that list, but the feed still displays my own tweets. Is this a bug?

    khromov: If you have a username AND a list selected, the username will take precedence. Make sure you have only selected a list.

    I think that I may have the same problem... but how do I make a list or input the "@username" so that they will show-up on the widget in order to select them and show THEIR tweets?

    Twitter has a help page that shows how to create lists:
    https://support.twitter.com/articles/76460-how-to-use-twitter-lists

    When you use the new version of the widget (2.5.0 or newer), you will see that there is a dropdown to choose an authorized username and a dropdown to choose a list associated with one of those usernames. Just choose a list and NOT a user to display tweets form that list.

    THANK YOU! I have made the necessary changes... they are not working (as yet) on the page, but I assume that they will... THANK YOU for a WONDERFUL (and FREE) plug-in - AND thank you for taking the time to help those of us who (sometimes, desperately) need your assistance!!!

    Hi,

    First of all, a big thank you to the developer(s) of this wonderful plugin.

    I am wondering whether there is there a way to add a list via shortcode?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have created a list, named it, then added the feed I want displayed in the Twitter Widget. I left the name field blank and added the listname to the list field. Unfortunately, it is not displaying the right feed! Any other suggestions?

    Having the same problem as gagibert13 - Name field is blank, list field has the list selected but tweets belonging to the account are displayed, rather than those belonging to the list.

    Same issue. And I discovered that if I mark the username as blank, the list choices disappear as well.

    Yes same issue for me , cannot display the list, even though the username is empty in both default and the widget itself.

    Yeah - pulling tweets from lists doesn't seem to work....
