I’ve now implemented support for Twitpic as well.
Grab the modified WordPress plugin here:
After installation, add the widget and make sure ‘Discover images’ is ticked.
For non-Wordpress users, the base code is also available here:
Include it in your twitter list source code, and use it as a filter for the message content. Something like:
$message = TwitterImageUtil::processContent($message, $mysql_database_handle);
Some configuration is possible – see the header comments for more details.
The code will create a thumbnail of the image, and store it locally. It’ll also cache the results in a MySQL database for speed. It supports Lightbox, too – just supply the relevant flag to turn it on.
