Twitter Stream 2.2.4 Description
Description: oAuth is now functioning correctly. After installing go to settings->twitter stream and follow the instructions to get started.
Twitter Stream is a simple plugin designed to simply show a users Twitter timeline. It includes file caching to stop overuse of Twitter's API. You can also choose how many updates to return (maximum of 200). It also includes autolinking for URL's found within the timeline. Also includes a date ago feature, showing the time the tweet was posted in xx ago format. Also has a permalink pointing to the tweet.
A widget is included, but you must have WordPress version 2.8 or higher for it to work, however standard useage should work down to version 2.5 although it has not been tested.
Twitter Stream requires PHP5 due to the use of SimpleXML. If you do not have PHP5 installed you will not be able to use this plugin.
Twitter Stream is also designed to be very lightweight & use the smallest amount of resources possible, ideal for shared or low memory servers.
Here is a quick run down of the features available in Twitter Stream.
1. Show the twitter timeline for any public username.
2. Uses oAuth to connect to Twitter without ever using your password.
3. Choose how many tweets to show.
4. A Widget or template function is available.
5. File caching to stop API overuse.
6. Optional date shown in xx ago format, also links to permalink for the tweet. (Requested by Ron)
7. Customizeable via CSS. (see 'Can I Style It?' in the FAQ)
8. Authentication for more accurate API counting & so protected users can show their tweets.
9. Translation files for different languages are now available to download on my blog post.
10. @replies now link to the user profile of the user you are replying to.
11. #tags now link to the Twitter search page for that hash tag.
12. Link to user's profile, customizable via CSS & via function parameter.
13. Optional display of follower count.
14. Retweets can now be shown. Used 2 API requests due to Twitter API limitations.
