[Resolved] [Plugin: Twitter Wings] List tweets

    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.
