Twitter + Widget = Twidger

Here’s a small WordPress plugin that allows you to display messages with usernames and avatars from a Twitter search results. An easy way to display the latest tweets containing specific keywords or usernames.

This plugin reuses code from Antonio “Woork” Lupetti (Simple PHP Twitter Search ready to use in your web projects), Ryan Faerman (PHP Twitter Search API) and David Billingham.

This plugin requires cURL to be running on the server. I am NOT a programmer, if you want to fix things, suit yourself. Special thanks to Marc Boivin.
