[resolved] Will this show complete timeline with followed tweets? (2 posts)

    Hello, Am having nightmare trouble with Twitter official timeline widget, as it only shows _my own_ tweets but my timeline has a bunch of followed tweets I want to show on my website. I need something that shows my complete timeline with my followed tweets. Will this do it?

    Thanks, have spent literally hours on this, first trying to use Twitter's solution but all it ever did was show my own tweets.

    (I'm running a self hosted WordPress blog, if necessary to know that.)

    Thanks, MG

    The only tweets this plugin will show that are not your own, are your Retweets of others.

    So the short answer is that this does not do what you want.

    However, it would not be too difficult to copy and modify this plugin to show your own timeline. You'll have to be familiar with PHP and the Twitter API, but you're welcome to do it.

    Take a look at the latest_tweets_render function and replace the API call to statuses/user_timeline with one to statuses/home_timeline. You may have to make some other modifications, but that should start you on the right track.
