This is a very lightweight free Twitter widget. You can add as many widgets as you like and poll another users timeline on every widget. Sadly Twitter restricts unauthorized requests, so you can only view a random number of tweets (max. 5), starting with the latest.
Why is it not possible to set an amount of loaded tweets?
Twitter declines the request for tweets without authentication, so it’s only possible to view a random amount of tweets. However, the latest tweet should always be shown.
Scratch that, it is possible now. Why?
To get a specific amount of tweets, you have to activate all include-parameters inside the json-request (which is now done by the plugin). So if you want 5 tweets, you’ll get them!
How can I exclude retweets and replies?
You have to edit the plugin on lines 156 and 157.
Why arent more tweets loaded if I change the “Number of tweets to load” setting?
Just wait for the page to make the next query to tTwitter. Alternatively you could set the “Update tweets every [x] seconds” to 0
