Description

This plugin adds the ability to put a shortcode tag in any static page or post and have it display the latest tweets for a particular twitter user.

It generates markup like this, which you can style as desired:

ul class='tweets'
li@a class='atreply' href='http://twitter.com/jane'jane/a Please dance a jig. span class='date'a href='http://twitter.com/me/status/2345'3 hours ago/a/span/li
liAnyone used TotalFinder? a href='http://t.co/blah'http://t.co/blah/a Saw it on @a class='atreply' href='http://twitter.com/bob'bob/a's machine and am intrigued. span class='date'a href='http://twitter.com/me/status/1234'6 hours ago/a/span/li
/ul
