Get Latest Tweets


This plugin adds the ability to put a shortcode tag in any static page or post and have it display the latest tweets for a particular twitter user.

It generates markup like this, which you can style as desired:

<ul class='tweets'>
<li>@<a class='atreply' href='http://twitter.com/jane'>jane</a> Please dance a jig. <span class='date'><a href='http://twitter.com/me/status/2345'>3 hours ago</a></span></li>
<li>Anyone used TotalFinder? <a href='http://t.co/blah'>http://t.co/blah</a> Saw it on @<a class='atreply' href='http://twitter.com/bob'>bob</a>'s machine and am intrigued. <span class='date'><a href='http://twitter.com/me/status/1234'>6 hours ago</a></span></li>


  1. Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory and unzip it.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ menu in WordPress.
  3. Create ‚wp-content/cache/latest_tweets/‘ and make sure it is writable by the web server.
  4. Put your Twitter credentials in twitter.api.keys.json. Make sure this file is not world-readable. You can get these from https://dev.twitter.com/apps
  5. Place [get_latest_tweets username="somename"] in your pages.

Hi Paul, thanks for this great plugin. I just updated to the latest version... and now the german special characters like ä ü ö don't show up any more. Is there a simple solution for that? Thanks Chris
