A Twitter portlet for Plone.

Project description


A Twitter portlet for Plone. This portlet allows you to track the ‘tweets’ of a particular user. You can add as many portlets as you like. The tweets are cached for one minute.

Add to your buildout:

eggs =
zcml =

Install this portlet into your Plone site using the Add products in Site Setup. Add Twitter portlets wherever you need, using the ‘Manage portlets’ interface.

The above ‘zcml’ step is not required in Plone 3.3+


0.8 - 2010-02-10

  • Ignore all URLErrors instead of the more specific HTTPErrors. This catches problems like ‘Connection refused’. (Hanno Schlichting - @hannosch)

0.7 - 2010-02-10

  • Fixed reStructuredText markup of the readme file. (Hanno Schlichting - @hannosch)

0.6 - 2010-02-10

  • The Twitter service is surprisingly often unreachable. Protect against common HTTPErrors and show an unavailable message instead of relying on the common portlet on-error handling. (Hanno Schlichting - @hannosch)
  • Removed the empty initialize method. (Hanno Schlichting - @hannosch)

0.5 - 2009-10-29

  • Changed the limit option to push it through to the API rather than retrieving all and then slicing (Ben Mason - @sparcd)
  • Added z3c.autoinclude.plugin entry point, so in Plone 3.3+ you can avoid loading the ZCML file. (Hanno Schlichting - @hannosch)
  • Portlet displays the error message if there is a problem accessing the API. (Ben Mason - @sparcd)
  • Links are now hyperlinked using regex. (Ben Glynn - @Open_Comms)


  • General bug fixes (Ben Mason - @sparcd)
