Rotating Tweets (Twitter widget and shortcode)

Twitter widget and shortcode to show your latest tweets one at a time an animated rotation

  • Replaces a shortcode such as [rotatingtweets screen_name='your_twitter'], or a widget, with a rotating display of your most recent tweets
  • Supports v 1.1 of the Twitter API (i.e. it still works)
  • Space efficient - instead of showing all your tweets at once, shows one at a time and then smoothly replaces it with the next one. After showing all your tweets, loops back to the beginning again.
  • Reliable - keeps showing your latest Tweets even if the Twitter website is down.
  • Customizable - you decide whose tweets to show, how many to show, whether to include retweets and replies, and whether to show a follow button. You can also decide how quickly the tweets rotate and what type of animation to use.
  • Responsive - resizes as your page resizes
  • Gives you the option to show a fully customizable Twitter 'follow' button
  • Replaces t.co links with the original link
  • Caches the most recent data from Twitter to avoid problems with rate limiting
  • Uses jQuery, jQuery.Cycle and jQuery.Cycle2 to produce a nice smooth result.
  • Compatible with W3 Total Cache.
  • Multi-lingual - now set up to be multi-lingual. The Twitter 'follow' button is automatically translated to match your site's language setting if Twitter has made the appropriate language available. Also uses WordPress's multi-lingual capability to enable translation of all the other text used by the plug-in via language packs.
