Rotating Tweets (Twitter widget and shortcode)
[resolved] List of most recent instead of rotation? (4 posts)

    Of all the Twitter plugins I tested this is my favorite. Here's why:
    - just works
    - the support here seems great
    - it integrates nicely with the theme (doesn't force its individual look)
    - i18n-ready
    - appropriate documentation

    I like it even though it isn't what I was initially looking for. I wanted a sidebar widget that shows the 5 most recent tweets. However, none of the plugins I tested provide that in a nice fashion.

    Still, although it's called Rotating Tweets for a reason it'd be nice if I could configure the widget as follows:
    - stop rotation, just show the n most recent tweets OR
    - bulk-rotation, rotate the N most recent tweets in bulks of n (e.g. 4 bulks of 5 tweets each)

    You can stop the rotation via short-code - not yet via Widget.

    For example:

    [rotatingtweets screen_name='twitter' tweet_count='7' no_rotate='1']

    Hope this helps.

    Bulk rotation could also be possible. I'll see if there's an easy way of doing it via short-code first before building it into the plug-in.

    PS: I'll look at adding a switch in the widget to allow you switch rotation off completely as well. In the meantime, you can add shortcodes via widget if you add

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    to the functions.php file of your active theme.
