This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Twitter Tracker: Blank Avatars


Provides a small blank image from your server in place of the avatars used by the Twitter Tracker widgets, avoiding Twitter cookies. This is inline with new directives from the UK government to reduce unnecessary cookie usage, following European legislation on this subject.

Use this Twitter Tracker partner plugin if you are hiding the avatars in your Twitter widget with CSS or you are not bothered with showing the Twitter avatars in your widgets. If you want to show the avatars, and want to avoid having Twitter drop cookies on your visitors, then the Twitter Tracker Avatar Cache partner plugin will be a better option for you.


The plugin is simple to install:

  1. Download
  2. Unzip
  3. Upload twitter-tracker-blank-avatars directory to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  4. Go to the plugin management page and enable the plugin
  5. Give yourself a pat on the back
