qTwit (for Wordpress) 0.3

Author: Kyle Hotchkiss [Productions]

So do you have a caching plugin that’s not showing your latest Tweets? Are you looking for a widget that loads your tweets faster then the server loaded way?

Well we’ve got a widget for you! qTwit (for WordPress) loads the tweets on the client-side, via a jQuery plugin called

“Tweet” by seaofclouds. This great plugin has always worked great for me on static sites, and Wickett Twitter Widget wasn’t

as fast as I would have liked it to have on my blog. So here we are


Upload the qtwit directory into /wp-content/plugins/ (Or whereever you store plugins).

Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

In the widgets dashboard, add qTwit to your sidebar.

Don’t forget to add your username, unless you want to what’s going on in someone elses life.


What’s with the name?

‘q’ is from jQuery (duh), and ‘Twit’ is short for ‘Twitter.’

What does the end user see if their Javascript is off?

Honestly, if people are too scared to see your website with Javascript, then they are probably better off not seeing what you post to Twitter!

Does it support multiple instances?

I haven’t tried it, but I didn’t add support for dynamic classnames yet. It still should be done.
