NOTE: Some user have reported some small issues regarding the plugin. The most of them are encountered because of the main wrapper div ID. The div ID used by the plugin is the most common one used by WP themes (see ltt.php line 52)

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
$(function() {
$('#content').find('.twitter_search').twitterpopup();
});
// ]]></script>

If you have this problem try change the #content definition to your wrapper’s ID. For any support related issues don’t hesitate to use the comment section of this article.
