Grab Twitter tweets

    How can I grab twitter tweets from a specific user like there is on the front page? I would prefer a wordpress plugin and a php script.

    I have a wordpress plug-in called "twitter-for-wordpress"

    Use that link to get the plug-in

    All i did was simply install the plug-in, activate it and then in my sidebar i used the following code

    < ?php twitter_messages("USERNAME"); ?>

    change "USERNAME" to the your twitter username or the username of whoever you want to follow (

    I placed the code snippet in my sidebar.php file and above it i placed a h3 tag saying "Tweet


    Another way to use the plug-in is through Design>widgets in the back end of wordpress after you log in.

    UPDATE : i’ve made a blog post about the twitter widget i use
