Social Web, Social Display

A simple module for displaying tweets using the Twitter API 1.1.
If needed easily customizable with css.

Features include:
- Simple configuration in the backend
- Filter tweets by word, containing hashtag,tweets from/to/referring a user
- Filter tweets by language
- show/hide twitter avatar
- Twitter follow button

V1.2 -- Changelog --
- Updated to work with Twitter API 1.1

V1.1 -- Changelog --

  • No PHP curl needed anymore
  • Added refresh button for tweets
  • Small bug fixes
This does what it says, however it is a little basic for my needs.

I would have given it more stars if it have more functionality.

The features it is missing are:

- No live feed (you have to refresh the page to get any updates)

- Only accepts a single word search

- Lack of documentation

Nice & simple, does exactly what it says.

Only con: searchfilter is displayed (next to follow-button) and I can't figure how to hide it.
If i read the instruction than it looks great. That's why i download it and install.

After that i see everything i need to see, except the rectangle table around the live tweets.

I'm sorry, but there is also no support to send email for question for help. I will look further for another one.

A great module indeed.Easy to set up and use. It would be very useful to add some customisation option such as the text color and background color. In any case its brilliant
I looked at all the 1.6 compatible Twitter extensions and thought I'd give this one a try. Works perfectly, looks nice, easy to install and configure, and it's free :)

Working great

Simple installation and configuration. Just missing a button "follow us" or "follow me".
Owner's reply: I will add the "follow me" link to the next version of the module. Thanks for the review !
