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 Counter


Twitter Counter plugin is the fastest and best way to add badges on your blog. All you need is to enter your Twitter username and TwitterCounter User ID and you’re good to go.

You can also add the Twitter Widget to your blog, which shows which twitter users recently visited your blog or website.

The plugin is very easy to use and comes with several options that allows you to easily configure the buttons or the Twitter widget.


  • Display Twitter Counter buttons. Multiple options are available
  • Display Twitter Widget
  • Sidebar widgets allow you to add one or more buttons and widgets
  • Complete customization from within the comfort of WordPress Admin
  • Clean uninstall if you choose to delete the plugin (but why would you!)


Below are a few features that I plan on implementing in future versions of the plugin. However, there is no fixed time-frame for this and largely depends on how much time I can contribute to development.

  • Display statistics from Twitter Counter
  • Integration with Twitter

If you would like a feature to be added, or if you already have the code for the feature, you can let us know by posting in this forum.
