Twitter is everywhere. So why not in your WordPress Dashboard? WordPress Dashboard Twitter is a Dashboard Widget that displays Twitter @replies, sent direct messages, Retweets, Friends Timeline and favorites the convenient way within your WordPress Dashboard. WordPress Dashboard Twitter turns your Dashboard into a Twitter client.
The Dashboard widget lets you update your status, send direct messages, follow your mentions and retweets, list direct messages, sent messages, your friends timeline and your favorites in a simple tab interface. All in a single widget. No seperate admin page needed. All the Twitter stuff you need right where you need it.

Introducing a new URL shortening service – wp.gd
WordPress Dashboard Twitter comes with its own URL Shortener Service wp.gd! It’s not public, but you can use it in WordPress Dashboard Twitter as much as you like. If – for whatever reason – you don’t like wp.gd, just switch to tr.im in the options.
- Download the plugin and unzip it.
- Upload the folder wp-dashboard-twitter/ to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
- Activate the plugin from your WordPress admin panel.
- Installation finished.
- Why isn’t this or that implemented to improve the plugin interface?
If you have suggestions please let us know by dropping us a line via e-mail or the wp.org forums.
This is a great plugin! It does exactly what it’s supposed to. I’m never on Twitter which is why I never post Tweets, but I am on my website very frequently. All I needed was to post tweets from my WordPress dashboard, but this plugin also lets me view my tweets, read others tweets, and see my mentions. Great plugin!
