    I am trying to create a Twitter feed on my WordPress page and I am using the Twitter RSS URL to grab the feed. The only problem is, it is showing the author of the feed, because it considers the Twitter comment and the author to be both part of the title, and I do not want that. I just want to show the comment. Here is an image with the author’s name circled in red:

    And here is the code I am using (excluding the RSS URL):

    $feed = fetch_feed('');

    $limit = $feed->get_item_quantity(2);

    $items = $feed->get_items(0, $limit);

    if (!$items) {

    echo "problem";

    } else {

    //everything's cool

    foreach ($items as $item) { ?>

      get_date('F j, Y'); ?>

      get_title(); ?>

    } ?>

    So how do I remove the author of the Twitter feed when it is considered part of the title? Thank you in advance.


    You’ll have to use Twitter API as opposed to an RSS feed.

    I use it all the time…easy to use and customize!


    @Roxon: I am very new to all of this. I have to say I did not understand much of what Chris was talking about in your link. If I give you the URL to the Twitter feed I want to use, could you be so kind as to make the hack that I need to use for my WordPress page? I would really appreciate it. The Twitter page I am linking to is:

    : Your link seems very similar to what Roxon suggested. It is also using jQuery and JSON, which means I have no clue what to do. Heh, and yes, I am new to all of this.

    Thanks to both of you for trying to help me!


    seaofclouds is what I use. Simple integration, style it as needed.



    i know this is an old topic (from 2011) but i think this is the most one to continiue a discussion about twitter feed integration. i dont want to open a new topic if we already have a few about this point.

    i’m searching a good customizable twitter feed for my website. it shouldn’t be a plugin for wordpress or else (yes my site is running with wordpress but i want to integrate the feed without a plugin an on sites without wordpress too)

    my ideas are going in these direction like on these websites: [Radio Basilisk]( “Radio Basilisk”) (see under the navigation) or [Battlelog News]( “Battlelog News”) (see in the footer on the right side)

    should i use the official Twitter Feed ( with my own costumization options or an unofficial script? i’m asking because i’ve readed in the past that twitter will close their RSS Feed, which will make a lot of scripts unworkable, is that right?

    i’ve searched already a lot in the web, but never found something which is what i wanted, so thatswhy i’m interessed in your opinion, which scripts are you using? which shouldn’t i? or do you know good documentations about the Twitter API?

    would be happy about every answer and help =) greetings from switzerland ^^


    any ideas?
