WP_Twitter_Client — Library to help WordPress developer working with Twitter REST API.
- Small and readable code (just one main file, three hundred lines including comments).

The examples, found in
examples directory are intended for starter kit and
learning purpose and SHOULD NOT be used for production site. Here's how to
play with the examples:
I encourage you to create a child theme from your active theme. Lets name it
twentytwelve_childdirectory and clone
$ git clone https://github.com/gedex/WP_Twitter_Client.git
- Include one of the example in
require_once( STYLESHEETPATH . '/WP_Twitter_Client/examples/widget_home_timeline.php' );
Go to https://dev.twitter.com/apps, create an app and note the
consumer_secret. Open the example you're going to use and find following lines:
define( 'CONSUMER_KEY', 'DL9ziNzAbLmShjW8sSYxw' ); define( 'CONSUMER_SECRET', 'l5NCQTBHv4VNVAIx0rb6R1oRoh21XPuqiy0kAfw8xnQ' );
Replace it with your own
It's best to start from
/WP_Twitter_Client/examples/authorization.php as it contains
the basic OAuth flow used to obtain the access token.
Example to demonstrate authorization using

you should be able to see the twitter screen_name.
Example to demonstrate rendering collection of the most recent Tweets and retweets posted by
the authenticating user and the users they follow using
WP_Twitter_Client. This demo will add
sub menu page to the Settings menu where it renders a button to authorize the app. Once authorized,
you should be able to see the twitter screen_name and the widget will be able to fetch the tweets.
