Get Facebook like Fan Box for Twitter thru WordPress Plugin

Facebook Fan box is really cool way to show your blog’s presence on facebook. In the same way, you can show your Twitter presence as well. If you want to have a fan box similar to Facebook for Twitter then you can get that by using a simple to use WordPress Plugin.

Here is the screenshot taken on one of my blog showing twitter follower box. You can customize the look and feel of the box by entering number of followers to show. Change the border color, background etc to make it suitable for your theme.

Twitter Follower Box : WordPress Plugin


What I feel after using this plugin is that if the developer can add Ajax effect on the “Follow me on Twitter”, then that will be perfect. Right now, the link will take your to my twitter page where you can select to follow.

Anyway, Thanks Sohail for developing this plugin. I am sure that lot many blogger cum Twitter users will embed this box on their blog.

  • Hi Siddanth,

    Sorry for the late response. Here is the solution for your problem.
    Please follow the below steps to include this plugin on your WordPress setup.

    1. Extract the RAR file
    2. Click on the extracted folder and go inside “twitter-fans”
    3. You will find two folders over there named “_MACOSX” and “twitter-fans”
    4. Copy twitter-fans folder from there and paste it on Desktop
    5. Now FTP that folder into the wp-content/plugins folder on your setup

    Now you can see Twitter Fans in Plugins Section of your WordPress admin panel. Let me know in case of any issues.

    Is it possible to get the twitter fan box without plugin? Like for facebook fan box we have to give only the facebookid for the specific url. Is it possible for twitter?

  • Thank you, it must be! It has long been searching for just that!

  • Questions:
    1. How can I change the number follovers? Now they are 8, and must, for example, 10
    2. Can I change the size of avatars?

    Thanks again!
