This is just the prototype release of the Twitter ticker feed widget. As of now it does not support multiple widgets and will only fetch user feeds. I plan on focusing on enabling multiple widgets next and then I will worry about fetching trends.
Update: I have updated the plugin to now use Twitter API v1.1 which means it requires OAuth. You must register a new app at https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new in order to use this widget.
FYI I just realized that this plugin is breaking the new display policy Twitter has for how tweets are supposed to be displayed. I'll be updated the stock css in the next couple of days. Until then be warned that using this plugin as is will be against Twitter's policies https://dev.twitter.com/terms/display-requirements
As of right now the css is pretty basic and only tested on my site. It may need to be adapted to fix your sites needs.
Can I use the widget in multiple places?
Changed to Twitter v1.1 and oAuth
Changed to use Twitter’s Search API in light of v1 being retired
Sorry in my rush to release the last fix I made some mistakes this should take care of it
Small fixes to the links (added target=”_blank” and made the tweet link to the actual tweet) and changed the title from “username” to “Follow
username on Twitter”. Thanks to toes21 for the suggestions!
Updated the twitter call to match with the new API
Added jquery enqueue to ensure proper functionality
The first release. Tested and works.
