Twitter Lite Drupal Module

A while back, I was working on a Drupal website that needed to be lightweight and flexible. One of the requirements was a Twitter feed.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the official Twitter Drupal module is nice and has some great features. I have always felt like it’s a little bloated and not as easy as it should be to make a Twitter feed.

I decided to make a quick an easy to use module to solve my problem.

I’m naming it Twitter Lite since it is the lite version of the Twitter module. It doesn’t have all of the features that the Twitter module has.

This module creates two Twitter feed blocks. You can also choose how many tweets to show per block.

Eventually I’ll extend this to show hashtag searches as well as usernames. For now, it only uses usernames.

There are some fallbacks that need to be made also.

Feel free to try it out on your own Drupal 7 site.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any bug reports or issues with the module. I’d like to actively maintain this and prep it for Drupal 8.
