Add the tweets to your sidebar

  {{ tweets:tweets name="{{twitter_name}}" count="4"}}
</div>

Calling the plugin from the theme is done with {{ tweets:tweets }}.

It has the following parameters:

Parameter Default Function

count 10 The number of tweets that you'd like to display.
show_replies no If replies to other users need to be included in this list.
show_retweets yes If retweets done by this user need to be included in this list.

Examples:

Show the 4 latest tweets by @statamic with replies and retweets: {{ tweets:tweets name="statamic" count="4" show_replies="yes"}}

Show the 10 latest tweets by @statamic without replies and retweets: {{ tweets:tweets name="statamic" show_retweets="no"}}

#Styling

If you want to override the default styling, copy the _add-ons/tweets/css/pi.tweets.css file to your themes css folder; ie: _themes/london-wild/css/pi.tweets.css. Then change the css file in your theme folder; this takes precedence.

I've 'written' this plugin for my own use. It comes without any guarantee, so your mileage may vary in using it. If you find bugs or have great additions you'd like to share, use github to fork the project and share your improvements by initiating pull requests.
