Reviews

It displays a link, not the timeline

The idea is very good. The plugin is easy to use. However it doesn’t really display your timeline on the blog, it only displays a link so users can find you on Twitter. And it’s opened in the same tab.

No Support

I asked a simple question one month ago and never got a response from the author.

Crapola

Just provides a text link to Twitter, for which a plugin is ridiculously unnecessary.

Works Well

Works perfectly with BeTheme in footer widget section. Not tried other locations but can’t see there being a problem.

Great extension, thanks for making it free!
