MyTwitter is a Mediawiki extension to embed a Twitter comments into a web page, using Ralph Slooten's MyTwit class. This extension needs Twitter's Oauth and curl commands. License is MIT-style license (http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT).


MyTwit is a PHP class used to embed a Twitter user's public comments into a web page. It keeps it's own cache, and (by default) updates only every 10 minutes when the page is loaded to prevent overloading twitter (and possibly getting banned). As of version 0.5, it uses an in-built Oauth and curl to fetch feeds.
