BackType Most Tweeted Posts Widget

Since discovering the BackType Connect plugin for wordpress and playing with the code for their TweetCount plugin I have found many other ‘Tweet’ centric widgets that can display tweets in the sidebar. 

While deciding which plugin to use on Customer sites I came across TweetSute and TweetBacks by Yoast, all came with widgets to show the ‘Most Tweeted Posts‘ So I decided to try and write my first wordpress widget from scratch.

Most tweeted Posts widget for BackType

Most tweeted Posts widget for BackType

Options include

The ability to select a Title for the Widget [default is Most Tweeted Posts]
Enter the number of Posts to show [default is 5]
Select which category to select posts from [default is all]


This plugin requires BackType Connect to be installed and active

This is my first wordpress widget so if you have any suggestions to improve it, please let me know.

Demo can be seen by looking here ———————–>

  • The Latest version of the widget (and older versions) can be downloaded from the  wordpress plugin directory
  • 3 Tweets

      does this still work or does it suffer from the same problems as wordpress backtype connect, which stopped working about a month ago?
