Currently the method being adopted by many web masters to display tweets on their web sites does not support retweets (RT). Recently there was an upda

How do I change the appearance of these tweets?

You can control their appearance in the normal way using css. Below is an example that will give you the appearance used at http://maraboustork.co.uk.

#twitter_update_list {
   float: left;
   margin-right: 20px;
   width: 280px;
   font-size: 10px;

#twitter_update_list li {
   border-bottom: 1px dotted #E6E6E6;
   list-style-type: none;
   padding: 10px 0px;

If you have renamed your <ul> element then ensure that that name is also changed in the above css.

How can i add more than 1 feed to my page?

Simply add an additional <?php get_tweets_with_rt('[your_twitter_username]', [number_of_tweets], '[control_id]'); ?> under the existing one replacing the parameters as necessary.


        <ul id="maraboustork_tweets"></ul>
        <ul id="some_other_feed"></ul>
        <?php get_tweets_with_rt('maraboustorkltd', 10, 'maraboustork_tweets'); ?>
        <?php get_tweets_with_rt('someothertwitteraccount', 5, 'some_other_feed'); ?>

Why are my tweets are not appearing?

We have noticed that there is a slight delay between the initial call our code makes to the google api and recieving he tweets. We are in contact with them about this as it appears that it is a security function to prevent you from carrying out a denial of service attack against a feed provider using the google api as a proxy to that attack (although we are waiting for this to be confirmed).

We recommend you check that you have specified your twitter user details correctly by accessing the following url in your web browser:

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/Your Twitter Username].atom?count=10&include_rts=true

If your tweets are returned in an xml format then there is no reason why the plugin will not work, and we therefore recommend that you wait for 10-15 minutes and try refreshing your pages after this period.
