In reviewing some of the information from the Orange County Wordcamp today, this plugin jumped out at me. It’s from the gang at WPVibe and it’s called Tweeted. It inserts a single tweet into your WordPress posts, like this:
I had reviewed a similar plugin a while back, but it didn’t save the tweet data in the post meta like this one does. So, it was a bit flaky. The method Tweeted is using should eliminate that flakiness entirely. I often find myself wanting to quote a Tweet in a post, and this makes giving all the proper credits simple. Just put the link to the tweet in inside the Tweeted short code brackets and you’re done.
Oh, and you can put more than one in a post. 🙂
If you know CSS, you can customize it’s look as well, and it comes with two standard styles, light and dark. I’m using the dark style here. It does have one shortcoming, in my opinion. It doesn’t make the links inside the tweets active. But other than that, I like it.
