Great plugin for themers
By , for WP 4.1

As many others have noted, this widget does not come pre-styled. If you are a theme developer who is looking for a twitter widget that comes ready-made on the backend but won't step on your toes with its own CSS, this plugin is made for you. Look no further.

Even if a blank CSS canvas is not an outright requirement for you, anyone who is willing and able to add a little CSS to their site still shouldn't worry - a few lines of CSS to style the UL and LI tags produced by the plugin and you'll be done.

If you're looking for something that has its own independent look right out of the box - perhaps because you can't edit your site's CSS - then this plugin indeed is likely not for you.

Effective and non-invasive

I use this on quite a few sites as it has all the functionality that is needed but doesn't add any bloat or strange styles that might get in the way of a custom theme.

it works!

Ive been using this for at least 1 year now, and where others have failed in support and functionality this plugin just keeps on rolling, steady, and trustworthy. Thank you.

This is a great Twitter plugin in a sea of poorly built plugins. Not only does it output an unstyled twitter feed (perfect for custom builds), it's well documents and takes you straight to the twitter API page to create the keys needed to make it work.

If anything about it is complicated, then that's twitters fault! This plugin even has the shortcodes explained so you can hardcode it right into your theme.

Thanks so much for this. It's ace!

Excellent for a custom look

This gives you the twitter feed as mostly unstyled mark-up. This makes it very easy to fit in with your own site, rather than looking like you've stuck a block of twitter's site on your beautiful design. Other plug-ins (eg mini twitter feed) look more like a typical twitter feed out of the box, but are much more difficult to style to suit your website.
So this is the best I've found for professional website designers.
