Larry the Twitter Bird

The DevBuddy Twitter Feed plugin is a WordPress plugin designed primarily for developers. It provides a system on which a WordPress developer can implement their own Twitter feed design with minimum effort.

It’s a truly white-label solution with which the developer can use it not only as a plugin but as native component to their theme, create their own template tags/shortcodes, and implement their own HTML structure and CSS.

I’m a freelance web developer based in Manchester with 7 years of experience in the industry. My whole thing is strategy and foresight; I’m all about coming up with solutions that are as future-proof and relevant to your situation as possible.

My background includes being Head of Technical in a start-up Social Media Marketing agency and working as a dev in or with small and large businesses. My business and commercial experience puts me in a place to see your project from your point of view, as well as the view of a designer/developer.

I’m also: Funnier than this website would suggest (see my side business), a decent public speaker, able to lift things fairly well.
