djangocms-twitter is a upgrade-friendly plugin, mostly derived from original implementation in django CMS core.
Due to the switch from v 1.0 to v 1.1 in the twitter API, the original plugin no longer works, and it's going to be removed.
Other plugin exists (or you could just switch to plain twitter widgets), althogh, it's still a bit frustrating to throw away existing plugins.
Contrary to the 1.0 API, Twitter 1.1 API requires you to create client side plugins in your profile and djangocms-twitter can do very little to avoid this. It delivers data-compatible plugins for straightforward upgrade.
Some field has been deprecated as no longer used by the twitter widgets. They have been left for easier upgrade.
Add djangocms_twitter to INSTALLED_APPS
$ python manage.py migrate djangocms_twitter
Insert the plugins in the page and configure them as stated in Usage.
For this plugin it's not necessary to create a widget for every plugin in your website; you could just consider the widget you create on the Twitter website as templates for this django CMS plugin:
data-widget-id value can be shared by any number of plugins instances, the plugin-provided user timeline will be shown, while the twitter widget graphics appearance will be used.
The twitter widget used by this plugin is entirely configured on the twitter website.
Older templates it's no longer valid. Most of the graphic configuration must be done in when creating the widget on the Twitter website.
A limited set of client-side options exists to configure the widgets; see https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines#options for further info.
To apply them you need to modify the plugin templates:
