jQuery Twitter Ticker using Twitter’s Search API

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

Tutorialzine is going to create a pure jQuery & CSS Twitter Ticker which utilizes Twitter’s Search API. It will show your or your friends’ latest tweets, and will not require any server side code or databases. As a result, the ticker will be easily included into any web page and easily modified to your likings.

To change the twitter accounts that are shown in the ticker, you’ll need to modify the tweetUsers array. If you provide two or more twitter names, their tweets will be shown together. Only the 50 most recent tweets from the past 7 days will be returned.

    Just in case you wanted to use the original plugin that spawned this whole twitter post plugin craze…

    Great tutorial, very helpful for a project I’m working on right now.

    However, I am having a problem retrieving tweets that are posted via twitter. Is there something I’m missing here?
