Twitter has announced its first official WordPress plugin, which is available for free from the WordPress.org directory.
The first version of the Twitter plugin allows WordPress users to add markup for Twitter cards, share and follow buttons from Twitter, embed posts and videos from the Twitter network, and use Twitter analytics.
In the future, this plugin will hopefully allow users to automatically post new posts to Twitter through their website, as well as search Twitter to embed messages in the site’s content.
The development of the plugin is carried out on the GitHub website, where anyone can participate. It should be noted that Twitter for WordPress requires at least PHP 5.4, so make sure your hosting provider supports it before installing the plugin.
