Twitter Feed Widget

banner-772x250

Twitter Feed Widget will display your tweets using ajax and jquery. It shows one tweet at a time and loops through an specified number of tweets and time interval. The plugin has just the necessary styling for it to work  you can change the look of it as much as you want. I try to build my plugins directed to web designers and developer so that can get a feature but style it as they need.

!IMPORTANT I have updated the plugin to work with the new twitter API. You will need to get an access token, access token secret, consumer key and consumer secret to be able to use the widget. Go to https://dev.twitter.com/docs/auth/tokens-devtwittercom
