Author:

In our previous blog post we have presented a list of 7 popular and useful Drupal modules for integration with social networks. After that we've received some queries like "Are there some other modules of such kind?". Thus we've decided to make up a new list!

1. “Twitter block” module

The module enables displaying tweets by pre-defined filters; theming the results with theme_twitter_block_tweet() and theme_twitter_block() functions. The module doesn’t include extensions, that’s why tweets with Drupal can not be added.

You can configure it on a block’s settings page.

The module is partially translated into Ukrainian.
