Twig allows you to display your Twitter "tweets" intermingled among your WordPress posts, sorted chronologically.


To access the settings page, navigate to the WordPress Plugins page and click Settings next to the Twig (plugin must be activated for this to appear).

Configuration Fields

  • Twitter Username - The username (not e-mail) that is associated with your Twitter account.
  • Twitter Password - The password that is associated with your Twitter account.
  • Refresh Interval - The time in minutes between updating the cache from Twitter (do not set this number too low, else you risk being banned by Twitter). Recommended: 30 minutes.
  • Tweet limit between posts - If you tweet more oftan than you post to your blog, this option allows you to limit the number of tweets show between each post to avoid congestion.
  • Date Format - Pattern to format the Tweet date on your blog. For a reference, please see this page. Example: M j, Y @ h:i A
  • Only include Tweets that contain text - Will only display Tweets that contain a specific string, useful for "hashtags" or "bangtags".
  • Hide @replies? - Would you like your @replies to other Twitter users displayed?
  • Prepend username to tweets? - Add your Twitter username to the beginning of Tweets?
  • Trim hyphens from tweet? - If you prepend your Tweets with a hyphen, this can optionally remove it (for example, if you tweet says, "- I'm taking a nap."" it would display as "I'm taking a nap."")
  • Tweet Template - The template used to format and display each tweet.
  • Show/Hide Template (optional) - The template for the Delete button/link, displayed to those with Administrator privileges to quickly delete a tweet from the cache.
  • Clear Cache - Clear the most recent entries in the cache and refresh them from Twitter. This may be useful if you are experience data issues.
