Primarily the focus on this tutorial is to display your cached tweets using PHP and OAuth on your WordPress website. We will be accessing the secure Twitter 1.1 API with PHP by parsing and caching the Json file using the WordPress API. It may seem a lot of code just to display your latest tweets on your website but the benefits are that you can style it to the taste of your theme with a little CSS and caching the Json file will not add extra load on the Twitter API.

Various reasons I assume to limit users from making unnecessary calls to the API, Security reasons. How do I go about it? Well now you will have to create a Twitter App then use a form of authentication to make the API call.
