This Twitter plugin offers many facilities, however, it has a primary requirement for the plugin to perform its functions, this is PHP 5.4 or higher enabled previously on your server.

Without this program, the plugin can be enabled but has no functionality, since the widget is not activated and its configuration page is not available. The only way to detect this error is to have previously activated the WP_debug, something that most people don’t do.


Once PHP 5.4 or higher is installed, the widget will start its functions on a regular basis, so that it will have its configuration and adaptation to customize it according to your taste.

Finally, it is worth mentioning the new resource known as «Input Editor», which is a very enjoyable and functional tool for community managers.
