Great write up on the current state of Twitter, and where it could, and perhaps should, be heading.
Over the past few years, I have worked on a number of sites requiring an events feed of some type. Rather recently, I decided to give WP Events Organiser a shot and have found it is a very simple but powerful plugin.
I have followed Stephen Harris (the plugin developer) on Twitter for some time and became aware of his great development skills after going through some informative posts on his personal site / blog.
Personally, I like taking advantage of the many built-in functions and hooks the plugin has. It makes manipulating and formatting the event data very easy. The plugin even has its own codex and very much comes in handy.
All in all, if you’re looking for a solid events plugin, I’d say give this one a shot.
