This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Super Simple Twitter Feed


Now gets your latest tweet OR tweets! This plugin uses Twitter API (V1.1). It also uses cURL which needs to be enabled
on your server or host environment. We’ve updated the plugin from getting a single tweet and formatting only urls as
links to allowing you to choose how many tweets you want, how to format them, AND formatting hash tags “#” and “@” text
as links. ALL of which is configurable by you! In keeping with the “Simple” theme, these choices are easy to make in the
settings of the plugin.

We’ve also kept the code concise and clean and in one file on purpose.
