This Article showcases a nice plugin that posts your Twitter Feed anywhere on your WordPress website. It’s customizable and uses shortcodes to display the data on your website. We’ve been using it on websites we’ve created for clients and they absolutely love how we’ve styled it to match their website design and layouts.
Twitter Feed for WordPress was developed by Alex Moss from Pleer and you can download it from their website or the WordPress Plugin Repository. This neat plugin allows you to display any twitter feed with any amount of tweets. There are several shortcodes you can use to sort through the twitter information including username and hashtags. The php file and the Pleer website offer some good examples of what’s available.
For developers you can implement the code directly into your theme by adding the shortcode directly into template files with <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[twitter-feed]’); ?>.
For users simply download the plugin from your Dashboard and install it. Then simply paste this shortcode anywhere on your site: [twitter-feed username=”YOUR TWITTER USERNAME”] if nothing is coming up, either you haven’t posted anything to twitter in quite some time or you can try adding other=”yes” after your twitter username.
This is probably one of the easier methods of displaying your latest tweets on your WordPress website. You should consider this plugin for your website or next project. It’s super cool to use and very easy to install and set-up. We recommend you check it out!
