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
  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 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.

404 Error

I Navigate to System > Configuration > Latest Tweets But it say's 404 Error Page not found.
Asked by: Baby_Liam
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.

Screen Name error - Fix Found

Hi I have recently tried to get this module working to get tweets from a user_timeline but I have been getting the "Sorry that page doesn't exist" message. I have figured out that the message is generated because in the request the module is sending the twitter id when it should be sending the twitter screen name. IT might be worth adding a field in the admin area for the screen name and then updating the Latesttweet.php file. I have also added the below code (Put at the bottom of the latesttweet.php file)to help with debugging the connection and the error messages coming back. I hope this is helpful. if (!isset($latesttweets->errors)){ return($this->getTweets($latesttweets)); }else{ var_dump($latesttweets); die; } Thanks

Nothing is getting displayed

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

Creare Latest Tweets From Twitter is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated out of 5 by from 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
