OAuth twitter sidebar widget


This widget will display the most recent tweets for any twitter user
who has their tweets set as public. Show up to 20 tweets. Include a link to your twitter profile and a twitter icon or your profile picture.

Include “time ago” timestamps below each tweet just like twitter. Updates automatically and looks great in any sidebar or widget area.

CSS friendly! All HTML includes element id attributes, and a default stylesheet.css is included.


This plugin is designed to work with the new Twitter 1.1 API which needs OAuth tokens to be passed to retrieve user’s timelines.
