Tweet!

Put twitter on your website with tweet!, an unobtrusive javascript plugin for jquery.

Important note about Twitter's API changes in 2013

Twitter has discontinued its unauthenticated v1.0 API, so this widget has stopped working as of 2013-06-11.

Twitter wants your only option for on-page widgets to be their own Embedded Timelines, but there are workarounds which involve installing server-side code to support this widget. Please see this discussion for more details.

Demos & examples

See tweet.seaofclouds.com, or the bundled index.html file.

Usage

  1. Get JQuery. In these examples, we use Google's AJAX Libraries API.

  2. include jQuery and jquery.tweet.js files in your template's <head>.

    <script language="javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script language="javascript" src="/tweet/jquery.tweet.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    
  3. Also in <head>, Initialize tweet! on page load with your Username and other options

    <script type='text/javascript'>
        jQuery(function($){
            $(".tweet").tweet({
                join_text: "auto",
                avatar_size: 32,
                count: 3,
                loading_text: "loading tweets..."
            });
        });
    </script>
    
  4. In <body>, include a placeholder for your tweets. They'll get loaded in via JSON. How fancy!

    <div class="tweet"></div>
    
  5. Style with our stylesheet in <head>, or modify as you like!

    <link href="jquery.tweet.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
