Adds a shortcode tag [get_latest_tweets username='somename'] to display an excerpt from your latest blog post.

== 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>
    <li>Anyone 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>

== Installation ==

1. Upload the plugin to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory and unzip it.
1. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
1. Create 'wp-content/cache/latest_tweets/' and make sure it is writable by the web server.
1. Put your Twitter credentials in twitter.api.keys.json. Make sure this file is *not* world-readable. You can get these from <https://dev.twitter.com/apps>
1. Place `[get_latest_tweets username="somename"]` in your pages.
