BTwitter Module

New in V2: Support for the new Twitter API

BTwitter is, by design, an incredibly simple Twitter feed module. I grew tired of trying to find a Joomla 2.5 compatible module that met the following requirements

- Doesn't slow page loads
- Doesn't contain heaps of un-necessary chrome
- Simply displays a users timeline, linking to all URL's, users and hashtags

BTwitter also implements the following in addition to meeting the above criteria

- Option to hide/display Twitter Name
- Customisable number of tweets to display
- Light and Dark styles
- Use (or expansion) of t.co URLs
- Customisable Date display formats
- Display (or hide) Users profile picture
- Inclusion of direct link to status update
- Inclusion of direct link to Users Profile
- Display a follow button
- Show number of followers
- Multi-lingual support (front-end only at the moment, back-end to follow)
- Support for feed caching

The module allows you to display any public twitter feed on your website. The feed is displayed using inline HTML so search-engines etc can also see the content.

The follow button does require an iframe, but all other content appears directly within the HTML body of your site.
