  • Hi Nikhil,
    I have been in search for this plugin and enquired with few of my online friends some of them said no idea and to my hasty action I used an outdated version and all my page collapsed , then I left that search there and in fact I feared to use any such plugins. and very recently the famous South African blogger Ikechi Awazie guided me to embed this on my page and it’s working well and in fact it’s a wonderful plugin and a must use to all bloggers. An easy to embed tweets to share it.
    I appreciate Nikhil for this wonderful tuto.
    I am bookmarking it so that I can suggest it to my friends.
    I am sharing it now to my pages.
    May you have a great week ahead
