Another Tweet module that can show your latest tweets or it can show a query based on the word(s) you put in the module’s configuration. Graphically I have to say this is a good looking one. In the configuration you can set avatar size, tweet count, display link text and some nice text features like: “I said”, “I replied”, making it a more human looking list of tweets. Recommendable for showing your tweets on your Joomla pages in a nice and graphical way.

Have scavenged the net, but haven’t come across a Tweet This module for Joomla. But here it is thanks to Gnome On The Run. An effective Tweet This button in a module. Configuration of the module allows a Tweet prefix, a choice of your favorite URL service to use for shortening your url. Number of items to tweet. 12 Tweet This buttons are in the package. The buttons are nice! In our website we have incorporated this Tweet This button module on the right top of our news pages.
