Today, Twitter is the most successfully microblogging website on this planet, Twitter was adopted on search result in Google, Bing and Yahoo. Beside that fact, mostly twitter user also ordinary blogger like me, they have personal blog or business blog. With a little trick that I got from instanshift, we can integrated our latest tweets on our WordPress blog.


This code is really useful and I was tried on my blog run without any worries. How to display latest twitter entries on WordPress is, copy and paste this code on your sidebar.php or footer.php or anywhere else and replace $username variable with your username.

[sourcecode language=”php”]
$username = "<a title="jauhari" href="">jauhari</a>"; // Your twitter username.
$limit = "3"; // Number of tweets to pull in.

/* These prefixes and suffixes will display before and after the entire block of tweets. */
$prefix = ""; // Prefix – some text you want displayed before all your tweets.
$suffix = ""; // Suffix – some text you want displayed after all your tweets.
$tweetprefix = ""; // Tweet Prefix – some text you want displayed before each tweet.
$tweetsuffix = "<br>"; // Tweet Suffix – some text you want displayed after each tweet.

$feed = "" . $username . "&rpp=" . $limit;

function parse_feed($feed, $prefix, $tweetprefix, $tweetsuffix, $suffix) {

$feed = str_replace("&lt;", "<", $feed);
$feed = str_replace("&gt;", ">", $feed);
$feed = str_replace("&gt;", ">", $feed);
$feed = str_replace("&quot;", "’", $feed);
$clean = explode("<content type="html">", $feed);

$amount = count($clean) – 1;

echo $prefix;

for ($i = 1; $i <= $amount; $i++) {
$cleaner = explode("</content>", $clean[$i]);
echo $tweetprefix;
echo $cleaner[0];
echo $tweetsuffix;

echo $suffix;

$twitterFeed = file_get_contents($feed);
parse_feed($twitterFeed, $prefix, $tweetprefix, $tweetsuffix, $suffix);
