Due to many of you asking how to get number of Twitter followers outside WordPress, I decided to write a small tutorial on that.
As of 11th of June, Twitter discontinued old Twitter API, so I decided to show you how to get twitter follower count using the new 1.1 Twitter API
While lurking through the web, I found this interesting jQuery plugin/widget that simplifies the integration of Twitter services into your site.
There are times when you need to access the Twitter API and get some info or latest status and display on your page. I bring you snippets that can get your job done in no time.
