Collection Twitter WordPress Plugins

25+ Best Twitter WordPress Plugins and Widgets 2017 Update

This is the 2017 edition of the Twitter WordPress plugins and widgets post.

After revising completely the original post and removing the plugins which disappeared, plugins that weren’t updated in a long time plus, plugins that had bad reviews, the article that contained more than 30 plugins ended in less than 10...

Sooo I rebuilt the post almost from scratch 🙂

I added a quick navigation index to help you to find what you want too.

WP Twitter plugins & widgets should be your fundamental social media tools in your marketing efforts, to promote your blog or WordPress website.

We are in an era where to be social and to do it wisely, is the best to succeed.

Twitter is one of the top social media channels and if you use WordPress, both can be integrated perfectly to maximize your efforts and achieve your goals.

Want to auto-tweet your latest posts from your WordPress blog?
Want to tweet old posts to give them life again?
Want to tweet, re-tweet and reply directly from WP dashboard?
Want to show tweets filtering by hashtags or users on your sidebar?

You’ve Twitter plugins and widgets for all those cases, and many more!

I’ve been researching and compiling the best plugins available, and it took me a long time because I needed to add the plugin excerpts, more also the screenshots to each case.

Here are the criteria I followed:

  • I don’t mention deeply global social sharing plugins like SumoMeMonarch, Shareaholic, Addthis, and so on, since they involve other social platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, etc. I want to focus this article, specifically, on Twitter.
  • But, you should not put all your “social” eggs in one basket, and you should be active in other channels, apart from Twitter.
  • These collection of top Twitter WP widgets & plugins were updated “recently” by their developers.
    In other words, if a plugin was updated 1 year ago is unsafe and probably you can find some incompatibility with new versions of WordPress and other plugins, hence those outdated plugins aren’t present here.
  • This roundup has free and premium plugins together, and I recommend reading, carefully, the technical details and requirements on the developers’ pages of each plugin.
  • Last but no least, these plugins are assorted, from simple to sophisticated ones that do wonders – so I expect you can find a Twitter plugin or widget that will suit your necessities within the list – enjoy!
