<?php twitter_messages("username"); ?>

<?php twitter_searchstring("#twitaly"); ?>

If you want to display the tweets of your friends timeline, use this:

<?php twitter_friends( "username", "password" ); ?>

If you want to display the current twitter trends, use that snippet:

<?php twitter_trends(); ?>

* ul.twitter: the main ul (if list is activated)
* li.twitter-item: the ul items (if list is activated)
