Twitter List Widget

Description

This plugin allows to place widgets on your sidebars, that fetch the contents of one or more RSS feeds, combine them by date if there is more than one, and display their contents in a twitter-like manner, that is, a list of texts, where links, @someone and #something are turned into links.

Use it typically to condense several twitter feeds into one, or to display any other feed that follows twitter syntax, such as identi.ca

Changelog

0.1

  • First version

0.2

  • Added a checkbox to have the first word of the feed turned into a twitter name link (use this if the first word is a twitter name, of course)
  • If the feed contains an author field (for ex. twitter search results), the name is added as the first word of the displayed text (useful with checkbox above)
