Overview

Creare Latest Tweets From Twitter

The new and improved Latest Tweets for Magento extension is back!

We're now compatible with oAuth and the Twitter API 1.1 (the latest Twitter standard).

Here is a list of the features:

  1. Choose whether to display in the left or right sidebar
  2. Choose how many tweets you want to display
  3. Choose whether or not you want to include links in your tweets (as well as mentions and hashtags)

We've also now added the option to add a "follow me" button!

To Install

Your latest tweets section will not appear until you perform the following simple steps:

  1. Install the extension, clear your cache, login/logout of admin (the usual!)
  2. Navigate to System > Configuration > Latest Tweets
  3. Enter your API keys from http://dev.twitter.com
  4. Edit and save your settings

Getting your API Keys from Twitter

For those of you struggling to obtain your API keys here is a quick guide:

  1. Login to http://dev.twitter.com with your normal twitter username/password
  2. Create a new application - enter your website information
  3. Click on your new application - then click "Create my access tokens"
  4. Copy/Paste your consumer keys and access tokens into the appropriate fields in the Latest Tweets extension
  5. That should be that!

We've got a few more plans in the pipeline, first of the agenda - caching. We want to be able to cache the latest successful callback from Twitter - just in case the API goes down or your really popular Magento site breaks the limit!

Remember all of our extensions are available from our Creare Magento Extensions section on our new website. If you want us to customise or install it for you then please visit our Magento Extension Latest Tweet for Magento page.

Creare Latest Tweets From Twitter 3.9 5 11 11
Timestanp localisation? Very easy to setup - works great in 1.5.2! The only problem is, that the timestamp from twitter is not localized, so it sais "13 days ago" on my german site. Is there a way to get the translated timestamp via api 1.1in this extension? Thanks ! Sascha November 23, 2013
Easy to install This is great and will be useful for my site. Only wish I could customise how it looks on my website, but otherwise it's great! November 2, 2013
Very good Very easy to setup and includes lots of settings - The default layout/code of the posts are also pretty spot on and very easy to customise. In short, excellent extension! September 10, 2013
Excellent I am not a developer but was able to get this app to work relatively easily. Very happy to finally have a twitter feed that works! July 23, 2013
Just the job As usual I don't know what most of the other reviewers are playing at. With a tiny bit of debugging (I had to comment out if (!class_exists('OAuthException') in lib/twitteroauth.Outh.php in my case) I got this working fine. Considering there are providers selling this, and indeed providers (BelVG) selling this right now when they haven't even updated it to API1.1, this is an excellent and most useful module. And yes, there's no styling. Which is a good thing, it keeps it light. Style it yourself ffsake, if you can't do that you really are in the wrong job. Thank you Creare Group. July 21, 2013
Ok for a start. The extension does work on Magento 1.5. The only thing is when you manually add the block to a mage there is no styling with it. July 7, 2013
Front Side Not Display Hi i have use magento 1.7 . and use your module install perfectlly admin work fine but front end side not display. i have use XML with block but fail. i have 3 year experience developer. so please checking module code. June 17, 2013
Hmm, not showing up on my magento 1.6.0.2 :/ April 20, 2012
Works perfect in 1.6.2 April 16, 2012
It works as long as I keep 'magentofox' as Twitter ID but when I change to my own the block simply disappears. Do I have to activate something special on twitter or get any twitter app? And btw, why don't you install frontend design and skin in base/default as it has been the default since 1.4.0, default/default is only to be backwards compatible with 1.3 March 13, 2012

Answer: 
Yeah, you are not on your own. The Twitter API is changing and I believe the atom feed being used by this module is not available anymore. I'm not too sure whether they will update the app to work with the new API.

Answer: 
As soon as you have installed the extension, log out of the admin area and then log back in. This should solve the 404 issue.

Hi,

i have installed the extensions and configured the settings in the admin. now when i am trying to show the tweets on homepage sidebar nothing is getting displayed there. I am using the following code to call the extension in my template:

<?php echo Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('latesttweet/latesttweet')->setTemplate('creare/latesttweet/blank.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>

If i echo any other text in the sidebar before or after the above written code that gets displayed.

What is the issue? Is it related to twitter API?

Please respond.

Thanks
