Yesterday I went about trying to figure out how to get my latest Tweet up in the header of this site. After looking at a couple of dozen Twitter plugins for WordPress I decided to write my own when I couldn’t find one that worked like I wanted it to.
The result is Just A Tweet. It’s meant to be a dead simple function that you can drop in to your theme and outputs just the last tweet, automatically linking @, #, and, well, links. Plus it’ll cache the request to the options table so you don’t have to deal with a remote request on every page view.
