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.

Lots of options - easy to style
By , for WP 3.7.1

Once you figure out how to get Twitter's API keys, this plugin is easy to set up and customize how it looks. Thank you so much for the shortcode documentation also!

I installed this plug-in and had a small problem. Because it is widely used, there is a wealth of problem-solving already available! Highly recommended!

Works fine after setup
By , for WP 3.6.1

Plugin works just fine. Setup is somewhat advanced, but you can find clear instructions HERE

I'm using it because it's integrated into the design of the theme I'm using. But Jetpack includes a Twitter feed which is much easier to setup.

Gave entire site 500 error
By , for WP 3.6.1

Updated plugin via admin and site disappeared. Had to do entire DB backup and remove plugin to get site back up. There definitely could be a compatibility issue on the site but this update alone brought the site down.

useful plgin

Plugin is very useful and easy to use, however it is not well formatted on front end.
