Twitter Goodies Widgets


This plugin will allow you to create any one of the four Twitter widgets located at twitter’s website with the friendly wordpress drag & drop convenience of widgets. Some of the features:

  • Can create multiple twitter widget instnaces (uses the new WP widget API)

  • All the options available via the twitter widget page are available here too (as of Nov 05 2009).
  • Save multiple themes for your twitter widget. Use one theme (or many) across multiple widgets, no need to retype settings like on the twitter site.
  • Quickly and easly switch between the different twitter widget types.
  • One widget makes for twitter widgets.
  • Place widgets in your posts and pages too with shortcodes (see notes).

To generate a twitter widget in your pages, here is a shortcode with all the attributes:

[tgw title=”Title for twitter widget” subject=”Caption for twitter widget” username=”Twitter User Name” search=”Twitter search string” type=”Either (search|list|faves|profile)” list=”Twitter List Name”]

Look at one of the twitter widget options in your admin panel, or also on the twitter site to see what combination you need for which widget type.


  • Create a theme, customize your twitter widget look and save it for use across many widgets.

  • Change the colour of your twitter widgets. Easy color picking using a simple colour wheel.

  • Choose between 4 different twitter widgets, including the new twitter lists feature.

  • Each twitter widget type has specific options.

  • When creating a twitter list widget, type in a twitter username and auomatically load their lists for you to choose from.

  • Using short codes, add your twitter widget to your posts and pages. (Width is adjustable)

  • See twitter updates directly on your sidebar using the official twitter widget API.
