Display someone elses twitter

    I have read the page about using Rotating tweets but I have to set up a twitter account for that

    If I just want to display someone elses tweets I found this page

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-to-display-someones-twitter-tweets

    <script src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script>
    <script>
    new TWTR.Widget({
    version: 2,
    type: 'profile',
    rpp: 4,
    interval: 30000,
    width: 250,
    height: 300,
    theme: {
    shell: {
    background: '#333333',
    color: '#ffffff'
    },
    tweets: {
    background: '#000000',
    color: '#ffffff',
    links: '#4aed05'
    }
    },
    features: {
    scrollbar: false,
    loop: false,
    live: false,
    behavior: 'all'
    }
    }).render().setUser('twitteruser').start();
    </script>

    I failed to add it to a text widget 🙁

    It used to work with Twitter API 1.0. These codes no longer work with Twitter API 1.1. You need to create a twitter application at http://dev.twitter.com and get Twitter API credentials to fetch tweets. I suggest you to use Twiget plugin.

    Thanks Prasanna.

    I just tried Twiget. It authenticates but circles around without fetching any tweets.

    However Rotating Tweets widget does now work 🙂

    Its a mystery to me!

    But what I wanted to do was display other users tweets not mine.

    I can put one account name instead of mine into the rotating tweet widget and it works!

    I was hoping that if it was watching my twitter account it would display all the tweets from anyone I was following.

    Is that possible? It might be a twitter issue
