I whipped up a new free WordPress plugin today. Twidget/WP displays your latest Twitter posts in the sidebar of your WordPress blog. (You can see an example to the right).

Since the size of the widget is not fixed, there's no wasted space like you get with Twitter's official JavaScript widget.

A few key features include:

  • Control the number of tweets displayed
  • Control whether replies are displayed
  • URLs are auto-linked, making them clickable
  • Long URLs are truncated for nicer display

Twidget/WP requires CaRP Evolution and a widget-aware WordPress theme.
