Displaying your latest tweets is a good way to encourage people to follow you on Twitter. The most common place to display tweets is in the sidebar, although you can add them to any area of the website.

  1. <?php
  2. include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/feed.php');
  3. $rss = fetch_feed('https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=smashingmag');
  4. $maxitems = $rss->get_item_quantity(3);
  5. $rss_items = $rss->get_items(0, $maxitems);
  6. ?>
  7.  
  8. <ul>
  9. <?php if ($maxitems == 0) echo '<li>No items.</li>';
  10. else
  11. // Loop through each feed item and display each item as a hyperlink.
  12. foreach ( $rss_items as $item ) : ?>
  13. <li>
  14. <a href='<?php echo $item->get_permalink(); ?>'>
  15. <?php echo $item->get_title(); ?>
  16. </a>
  17. </li>
  18. <?php endforeach; ?>
  19. </ul>
