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.
