I wanted a quick and simple way to just automatically link to a Twitter userpage or Twitter search whenever I wrote them in a blog post.
The other plugins where full featured or only linked to the username in the sidebar or widget.
Whenever you put an @username in a post, it will link to the matching twitter user page.
Whenever you put a #hashtag in a post, it will link to the matching twitter search page.


  • What a post looks like with an auto linked @username and #hashtag


  1. Create directory tweet in your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Upload tweet.php to the /wp-content/plugins/tweet/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Optional – You can customise your username link by using the tweet-username CSS class.
  5. Optional – You can customise your hashtag link by using the tweet-hashtag CSS class.


Can this plugin do more?

The idea is simply to link to twitter from your posts. For now, that’s it.
