Plugin is Hacked and not maintained, do not use

Abandonware - doesn't work
By , for WP 4.3.1

Unable to get it to work ("Could not recognize the response from Twitter"), unlike other Twitter plugins which take the Consumer/API keys just fine. Developer has said it's not being updated, so I'd save yourself some time and look elsewhere.

Does NOT parse hashtags!
By , for WP 4.2.3

I wanted to follow a certain hashtag. However, although the widget description mentions this function explicetly it has never been implemented.

This widget will only fetch tweets from your own account or your lists. It is NOT possible to display the results of a hashtag query.

I spent 2 hours fiddling around with this app until I found a 2 years old support thread where the widget author confirms that his description is acutally misleading.

No longer maintained or supported

Same Tweet All Month
By ,

I've had the plugin installed for many months. I've been updating it. I've got two of my main Twitter accounts registered and both are in good standing.

They allow a single Tweet to be displayed and it never refreshes.

One star for working to a point, potential but I've giving a second star for allowing multiple Twitter account activation. That works well for me not like it seems to for others.

I'd happily try the plugin again and revise my review as I wish people would do with my plugin lol

Bad

Don't work!!!!

Functional

It works, but damn is it ugly.
Has no way of navigating or interacting with tweets apart from following links.

Doesn't update
By , for WP 3.8

I've been trying to refresh my Tweets with this plugin since September. It's December now and I didn't want to switch because of the CSS customizations I implemented. Removed and added back. No luck. Uninstalled for good...
