    How to show the tweets like list?

    Many WordPress themes use nested lists to display sidebar sections. This is slowly changing as themes incorporate HTML5 semantic markup.

    Newer themes have embraced the <aside> element for sidebar sections. This is semantically more acurate than an unordered list.

    In the case of a Twitter feed, I can see why an unordered list might be used, but I would argue that the <article> element is more semantic.

    In addition to body content, each tweet has metadata: a dateline, an author, an avatar. Putting all of this into a list item did not make sense to me. If a Twitter feed is an unordered list, then a blog is an unordered list as well. Slippery slope...

    Check out the HTML5 spec for more info:

    If you need to format your feed as a list you can always edit the plugin. Change the tw-body <div> to a <ul>, and the <article> element to an <li>.

    Thanks for downloading.
