Twitter sidebox Cached

Description
This Zen Cart add on enables you to display your latest tweets in a side box.

An important feature is that the script only connects to the Twitter server once in a while and caches the result. This prevents you from exceeding the maximum amount of requests per hour that Twitter allows you (currently 150). And it also prevents that your site slows down when the Twitter server is slow or not responding.

Includes Twitter logo and Follow us button and a basic tweet filter (feature to hide tweets you don't want to display in the Twitter side box).

Easy installation, no files are overwritten and no core files to edit.

Notes
- Completely remove any other (uncached) Twitter boxes. Uncached Twitter boxes may slow down your site, even when the box is disabled!
- cURL required.
- Zen Cart cache directory needs to be writable.
