Latest Tweets Obvs
Seeing as it is often a requirement in the projects that I work on to add a Twitter feed to a WordPress website, I decided to make my own plugin that does just that.
Latest Tweets Obvs uses the Twitter API to securely retrieve the latest tweets from a user account.
It seems that while there are plenty of Twitter plugins out there, many are either bloated with unnecessary CSS or poorly maintained and outdated with regards to the Twitter API.
The plugin comes with optional CSS, albeit minimal, and is intended to fall back on your base theme styles.
When you are done tweaking the settings, you can display your tweets right away by pasting a shortcode anywhere in your theme/site.
In the plugin settings page, along with choosing how many tweets to show, you can also opt to show or hide the following:Replies Retweets Profile image Display name Username Description (bio) Location
As mentioned before, there is also the option to turn off the plugin CSS, if you would rather use your own styles.
To install the plugin, head over to the WordPress Plugin Directory page to download the plugin and follow the instructions there.
