Extortion
By , for WP trunk

Be warned! This plugin author decided that the API update was a great time to start charging for something you already use. In addition, your Admin for using the Free plugin will be filled with Ads and "Go PRO" links.

Now, I will be the first to wish that plugin developers earn a decent living, but I feel that it is appropriate to develop new features for your paid version of the plugin. Instead, the author has lowered the bar: pay for the same functionality that you already have, or get something worse for free.

My vote--is to find another solution where the plugin author is a consistent. Offer a plugin for free with paid version, or offer it for free--but, to demand money for something that used to be free feels like extortion.

UPDATE: You don't need the FREE version of the plugin at all. According to user: @froginthevalley Sylvain Carle (from Twitter)

If you are hosting your own wordpress.org blog, the easiest way is to add a text widget to your sidebar (in Appereance ยป Widgets) and paste the widget code you get from https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/

Very customizable
By , for WP trunk

and works great. Does everything you would expect from a Twitter feed plug-in. I would appreciate if the retweet/fav/reply links were inside a container so I could style them differently.

Perfect

Best twitter feed plugin ever. It should be better if a Widget for it is made specifically.

Really great, but not currently working?
By , for WP 3.4.2

I've used this on many sites and it's been excellent, but over the last month I've found that the feed mode has not been working correctly - search still works... Could you take a look?

External images
By , for WP trunk

The WP Twitter Feed widget plugin loads images from an external source. They need to be hosted locally, both for performance reasons and to ensure they don't break when using https.

Here is a Diff. which fixes the problem.

EDIT: I wrote a plugin to correct for these problems ... http://geek.ryanhellyer.net/products/wp-twitter-feed-fix/
