Admin Control Panel
The control functions such as connecting to a Twitter account and storing information on the tweets/blogs, can be accessed through the "Twitter Control" GUI in the WordPress admin panel.
Any changes in the currently active Twitter account tweets can be immediately updated by clicking on the "Update Blogs" button.
Order, Prioritisation and PM Filtering
The application will display the latest tweet from all of the active accounts and then display those latest tweets in date order. So the newest tweet across all of the accounts will always be shown first. It is also possible to switch between allowing/disallowing PM (Private Message) tweets to be included in the display.
Separate All Tweets Page
If a user has applied restrictions on the amount of Tweets displayed in the application then they can create a separate WordPress page to hold the entire tweet output of all the active Twitter accounts.
Running the relevant Twitter API function calls can sometimes a few minutes to fully execute. All information is stored in a cache data held locally, so that it minimises the chance of performance loss on web pages.
If users wish to have regular/automatic updates of their Twitter account tweets, then that is achievable through creating a crontab entry, or similar automation mechanism, to execute the supplied "runTwitterScript.php" file.
Specific styling using CSS
A CSS file is supplied to provide a starting point for displaying the tweets, but changes can be made to suit individual preference.
