5.4 Twitter Integration

Recent Tweets Widget

Recent Tweets Widget plugin for Twitter API v1.1 with Cache. It uses the new Twitter API v1.1 and stores tweets in the cache. It means that it will read status messages from your database and it doesn’t query Twitter.com for every page load so you won’t be rate limited. You can set how often you want to update the cache.

  2. Upload the recent-tweets folder and its contents into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation
