My team and I recently built an awesome list template on WordPress that ranks a set of Twitter users based on follower count. It allows a content writer to easily add a list of Twitter handles, and generate a well designed post. The first piece of content we created with it generated a 1,212% increase in traffic to our site. Check out the tutorial below if you’re interested in building it as well. Requirements Input Twitter Handle (required) Name (optional) Tagline (optional) Image (optional) Bio (optional) Personal Website (optional) Tags(optional) Features Content writer needs to be able to easily set all data points. Every optional field set in WordPress needs to override any data retrieved from Twitter. The output needs to be sorted by the number of Twitter followers. The output needs to be filterable on the front-end by a set of tags. All data needs to be saved in local storage so Twitter is not called on every page load. Output A beautiful list of Twitter accounts — sorted by follower count — and filterable by tag. Check out the result! How to build an infinite list in WordPress First things first, you’ll need to create the data. Step 1 Install the Advanced Custom Fields Pro WordPress
