“Simple Twitter Plugin” is a WordPress Twitter Widget plugin that allows to display timeline for Tweets from an individual user, a user’s favorites, Twitter lists, or any search query or #hashtag as a widget in your sidebar (as you can see on the right side of this page). You can customize widget colors, style, size etc.

Mobile Support

  2. Activate plugin in WordPress admin
  3. In WordPress admin, go to “Widgets”. Drag “STP – Twitter Timeline” into your sidebar.

  3. Select “dark” or “light” theme.
  4. Select if you want to show widget header, footer, scrollbar or border.

    When I visit my site via chrome / safari via the iphone, the twitterfeed suddenly has a dark background. It works fine in regular chrome/safari/firefox, just not with the mobile version.

    Any ideas what this can be?

    Great widget! Real easy to change colors to fit the color scheme of any website. Simple and very effective. Just have one question… can I change the font weight of the tweets to bold?
