ZP Recent Tweets is a free ClassicPress plugin to fetch tweets from an account and display them in a widget.
It uses the Twitter API v1.1 and stores tweets in a cache. It will read tweets from your database and doesn’t query Twitter.com for every page load to avoid rate limiting. You can set how often you want to update the cache.
NOTE: Saving the widget control panel options clears the tweet cache so don’t do it too many times per hour.
You can have as many widgets as you want, querying the same or different Twitter accounts.
The plugin applies very simple styling (nothing more than italics, margins and font size), which is easy to override with CSS.
ZP Recent Tweets is a complete rebuild for ClassicPress of our now-retired WordPress plugin ZigTweets. Right now ZP Recent Tweets also works on WordPress, but future compatibility is not guaranteed.
