Quote tweets from Twitter directly to a WordPress page or post using a simple shortcode.

Depending on the template you select, an "in reply to" link will be created if the tweet is a reply to another tweet. All generated links have rel="external".


  • This plugin caches the information it gets from Twitter.com. Please make sure the /xmlcache/ sub folder is writable!
  • You can create your own tweet templates and save them in your templates folder under {CurrentTheme}/wpqt/.
  • This plugin uses the SimpleXML extension. It requires PHP 5!
  • If you wish to preserve your cached XML files due to Twitter limitations, create the following writable folder: /wp-content/cache/xmlcache/. All the requess will be cached there if it exists and is writable.
