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.

Same Tweet All Month

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

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...

This plugin works

At first i got tensed with twitter account authorization, then i found the solution in http://wordpress.org/support, then i faced http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-twitter-widget-pro-no-tweets-available?replies=54 and this is also resolved and you have to wait 5-10 min before tweets appears in your site as the server from twitter says.

Thanks :D

doesn't update tweets
By , for WP 3.8

this had the promise of being a great minimalist twitter feed. the process of making your own twitter application through dev.twitter before you set up isn't bad, but the plug-in just won't take the codes, it's buttons sometimes disappear when authorizing the account and on the nth time, maybe it will take. i've had this same setup problem on 3 sites across 2 hosting providers.

once you painstakingly get it live tweets won't update unless you go back to the plug-in and manually reset it. maybe it's a problem with my hosting provider, but that doesn't explain why when I changed over to the 'Simple Twitter Tweets' http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-twitter-tweets/ which uses the same OAuth process, it authorizes on the first try and updates tweets perfectly.
