Roadmap towards version 1.0

This plugin works already. But there’s still things TODO:

  • Enable Twitter authentication as default (maybe Premium?)
  • Figure out if it’s possible to check if user already follows the account and show “Following”-button instead of “Follow”-button
  • Style Tweet button and load Twitter images locally if user is using any “anti social media”-plugin in browser
  • Style admin panel options-page
  • Make TAB more responsive
  • Better error handling
  • Documentation
  • Test with different WP-versions


  • You can use this shortcode in posts and pages: [twitter_account_box]

Next version: 0.3.0

  • Better error handling with tweet data and code refactoring

Version: 0.4.0

  • Support to favorite tweets
