Built on the new oauth twitter api v1.1, it pulls the most recent tweets for any given Twitter account.

Built on the new OAuth Twitter API v1.1, it pulls the most recent tweets for any given account.

Example of full code usage:

    oauth_access_token="xxxxx" <!--required-->
    oauth_access_token_secret="xxxxx" <!--required-->
    consumer_key="xxxxx" <!--required-->
    consumer_secret="xxxxx" <!--required-->
    screen_name="adpearance" <!--optional-->
    count="3" <!--optional-->
    trim_user="1" <!--optional-->
    exclude_replies="1" <!--optional-->
    contributor_details="0" <!--optional-->
    include_rts="0" <!--optional-->


Note: The count parameter limits the number of tweets returned. The count is generated before the retweets are taken into account and before determining if a tweet status is closed; in some cases, less tweets may be returned. This is a Twitter API limitation.

To find your oauth access and consumer tokens.

  • You will need a Twitter account. If you don’t already have one, create an account.
  • Go to and log-in.
  • Click “My Applications” from the top right menu under your profile picture.
  • Click the blue “Create a new application” button.
  • Fill out the required information and create your application.
  • When finished, click “Create my access token.”

At this point you should be ready to roll! Copy the code example above, replace the authentication tokens and tailor it at will.

The only one I could find that actually works for 2.9

Works great with screen_name passed directly into the plugin tag but when passing in from a field the API returns error code 34, presumably because the tag hasn’t been parsed. Parse order but that didn’t seem to make any difference.

Great plugin. One tiny oversight though; the version number in the plugin code is not consistent with the version number on

Screen Name issue is now fixed as of version v1.1

This works with a slight change to the code. Not sure if it is intentional or just a mistake but if you want it to return anything other than the authors tweets you must go in to the plugin and at line 50 insert your own screen_name instead of theirs.
