Same Tweet All Month
By ,

I've had the plugin installed for many months. I've been updating it. I've got two of my main Twitter accounts registered and both are in good standing.

They allow a single Tweet to be displayed and it never refreshes.

One star for working to a point, potential but I've giving a second star for allowing multiple Twitter account activation. That works well for me not like it seems to for others.

I'd happily try the plugin again and revise my review as I wish people would do with my plugin lol

It works, but damn is it ugly.
Has no way of navigating or interacting with tweets apart from following links.

Nice results, but installation is a PITA.
By , for WP 3.5.1

Nice plugin. Have seen wonderful results on other sites. However, duplicating those results (ie, styling via CSS) is not for the faint of heart. After 3 hours of searching through support messages and a glass of The Macallan, I may just try to convince the client to use the "official" ugly twitter plugin.

I can understand not including a CSS file for reasons of "everyone wants different styling", but including one would at least help people determine what to EDIT. I understand the benevolence of a free widget, but when it's this difficult to add to a site, one feels more annoyed than gratified.

If you're an expert with function.php, you may have no problems. If you're simply a designer, prepare for battle. Sigh.

Ew.
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's a bit confusing to get working to start, but once you do the least I can say is that it actually works. But man does it look terrible. If you list more than one tweet, you get a bulleted list of twitter babble that just looks garbled and bad. And it makes me feel bad.

Limited number of tweets, no layout settings
By , for WP 3.5

Max number of tweets is 150 and they are collective with the rest of people on your host, meaning that your site will show a very limited number of your tweets and updates will be delayed until the limit is reset.

Also, there are no layout settings from within the WordPress admin panel.
