Can WordPress import posts/comments from Twitter?

  1. Hello:

    I noticed that the "Tools > Import" feature from my admin Dashboard doesn't include Twitter.

    Could you possibly implement a change to allow posts and comments from Twitter to be imported into WordPress?

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Also note this > Twitter Timeline Widget

  3. WordPress, despite having an Import function, is not an aggregator. It is a host for original blogging. If you want an aggregator, you want something like Friendfeed.

  4. @timethief. Thanks again. I didn't realize that I could: 1. embed a URL in a post and 2. "Display an official Twitter Embedded Timeline widget" in my sidebar.

    But I should have elaborated further: I wanted a general dump of my Twitter "archives" into And I thought perhaps sometime in the near/distant future, there would be a "import" available from the Twitter system.

  5. @raincoaster. Um, okay. Will research further on this "Friendfeed". Thanks again. Darn!
