Display your Twitter followers anywhere in the site or use the widget to display it on the sidebar.Like Faebook’s Like Box show your followers and a button to follow you. Also you can display people YOU follow instead of followers by simple changing settings on the widget. Colors are also editable in the admin settings page.

To call the Twitter like box anyplace on your theme use:

<?php twitter_like_box($username='chifliiiii') ?>

Also you can change the total users to display and show users you follow by applying false to show followers

<?php twitter_like_box($username='chifliiiii', $total=25, $show_followers = 'false') ?>

[TLB username=”chifliiiii” total=”33″ width=”50%”]

This plugin don’t use cron jobs or anything that will overload your server like other plugins. It uses the new functions of wordpress (transient API) to cache results for 6 hours instead of query Twitter every time that a page is refreshed or visited on your site
