In order to use this plugin you will need to have applied for a Twitter Developers Account and have created a Twitter Application. Links regarding all the above is contained within the settings area.

You can control the Number of Tweets, whether to include Retweets or Exclude Replies, the Tweets are rendered as a simple unordered list all with straightforward classes to enable you to style your Twitter Timeline however you want, there are no CSS styles by default.

Each individual Tweet has the same interactive functionality of Twitter enabling you to Retweet, Favourite & Reply, if Images are attached to your tweet these will display as an Icon linking your directly to the embedded Image on Twitter.
