Twitter Hashtag Plugin

Today, I had a request to display a Twitter feed based on Twitter hashtags rather than on the customary Twitter username on a client’s WordPress website.  I had never done this before with hashtags, and quickly discovered that there aren’t a lot of hashtag WordPress plugins in the WordPress plugin repository.

After a quick search of Google, I came across this Twitter Hash Tag Plugin by Matt.  It does a fantastic job and even has an option to insert photos of the users!

    Good plugin. I just installed it. But its not what I was actually looking for. I’m actually looking for a plugin that would hashtag my wordpress new post tweet.

    This plugin will act as a widget which runs the hashtag topic of your choosing on your sidebar. Nifty but no cigar.

    so simple yet oddly non-existing.

    I’m looking for a similar plugin and this looks to be doing the job. It would be great if it had a live feed.
