Timeline Twitter Feed

Description

Timeline Twitter Feed let’s you output your timeline feed and multiple hashtags into your WordPress site as flat HTML.
The output is customizable on nearly every aspect. With or without profile pictures, tweet date, usernames before tweets, hashtags and usernames as links etc. etc.
CSS styling can be added/overwrited via your theme’s stylesheet or in the Timeline Twitter Feed settings screen.
There is also a widget to easily add a Twitter feed to your header, sidebar or footer, if your theme supports it.

If you don’t report it, I can’t fix it!

FAQ

Why is the feed not showing tweets when “hashtags only” option is selected?

If you show tweets from hashtags, unwanted tweets will be filtered out.
Unwanted teets are tweets that contain words from the “discard tweets” option, tweets that are retweets or tweets with hashtags from your own account.
Try to set the “number of tweets to get in advance” to a higher number.

Reviews

Love it, but sometimes buggy

This plugin is perfect for what I need. I love how simple it is and that I can choose how many recent tweets to display. My only complaint would be that after making any changes to the settings of the plugin or sometimes even simply editing things on the page where the plugin is being displayed, it will not display for several minutes (10-30 that i’ve noticed.) It actually made me originally think the plugin wasn’t working. If I check the source code, literally nothing appears where the plugin should be. I’m not sure why it quits or what makes it suddenly work again. It’s hard to tell users that it will show back up on it’s own later. Please look into this.
