Plugin Directory

Fetch Tweets

Fetches and displays tweets from twitter.com with the Twitter API.

How to Set up

Do I need API keys to use the plugin?

They are not necessary as of v1.3.0. Just click on the Connect button in the Authentication (Dashboard -> Fetch Tweets -> Settings -> Authentication) page of the plugin. It will redirect you to the Twitter's authentication page. Then you log in to Twitter there and authorize the plugin.

Can I use own API Application keys for authentication?

Yes. Click on the Set Keys Manually button in the Authentication tab. It will redirects you to the page to set the keys manually.

If you do this, you need to create an application to access the Twitter API here. Then create consumer key, consumer secret, access token, and access token secret. Without these, you won't be able to fetch tweets.

Customizing Outputs

How can I create my own template file?

Techniques

How do I display tweets with a certain hashtag from a specific user?
  • Go to Dashboard -> Fetch Tweets -> Add Rule by Search.
  • Type #HASHTAG AND from:SCREENNAME in the Search Keyword meta box option field. Change the part, #HASHTAG, to your searching hash tag and the part, SCREENNAME, to the account's screen name to fetch tweets from.
  • Create a rule by pressing the Publish button.

Troubleshooting

Why don't tweets update?

It could be that your host disables WP Cron. In that case, try the intense caching mode which can be configured via Dashboard -> Fetch Tweets -> Settings -> General -> Cache Settings -> Caching Mode.

I get the error "WordPress database error: [Lost connection to MySQL server during query]"?

Increase the value set to max_allowed_packet in the MySQL server configuration file. (for instruction)
