Twitter module in action


This module provides API integration with the Twitter microblogging service. Out of the box, it allows users to:

  • Associate one or more Twitter accounts with their Drupal user account.
  • List tweets in different ways thanks to Views.
  • Post to their own Twitter account or a site-wide Twitter account whenever they create new content or based on Drupal Actions or Rules.
  • Log in to your Drupal site via Twitter.
  • Format twitter @usernames and #hashtags as links to
  • Search and post to Twitter via Drush commands.
  • View embedded images media from tweets (not in 7.x-6.x branch yet).


Twitter requires OAuth to connect with the Twitter API. Previous versions did not have this requirement but due to Twitter's API changing it is now required.
