this code is working perfect for me, but just want to know, how can i bring this after my post, currently all my tweets are coming before the post, how can i make it before the post??

    function parse_twitter_feed($feed, $prefix, $tweetprefix, $tweetsuffix, $suffix) {
  $feed = str_replace("&lt;", "<", $feed);
  $feed = str_replace("&gt;", ">", $feed);
  $clean = explode("<content type=\"html\">", $feed);

  $amount = count($clean) - 1;

  echo $prefix;

  for ($i = 1; $i <= $amount; $i++) {
    $cleaner = explode("</content>", $clean[$i]);
    echo $tweetprefix;
    echo $cleaner[0];
    echo $tweetsuffix;

  echo $suffix;

function the_twitter_feed($username) {
  // $username = "Mba_"; // Your twitter username.
  $limit = "5"; // Number of tweets to pull in.

  /* These prefixes and suffixes will display before and after the entire block of tweets. */
  $prefix = ""; // Prefix - some text you want displayed before all your tweets.
  $suffix = ""; // Suffix - some text you want displayed after all your tweets.
  $tweetprefix = ""; // Tweet Prefix - some text you want displayed before each tweet.
  $tweetsuffix = "<br>"; // Tweet Suffix - some text you want displayed after each tweet.

  $feed = "http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=from:" . $username . "&rpp=" . $limit;

  $twitterFeed = get_transient($feed);
  if (!$twitterFeed) {
    $twitterFeed = wp_remote_fopen($feed);
    set_transient($feed, $twitterFeed, 3600); // cache for an hour
  if ($twitterFeed)
    parse_twitter_feed($twitterFeed, $prefix, $tweetprefix, $tweetsuffix, $suffix);
function append_the_content($content) {
    $content .= the_twitter_feed(get_option('tweetID'));
       return $content;
add_filter('the_content', 'append_the_content');


function tweet_fetch(){
add_options_page('Tweet','Tweet', 8, 'tweet', 'tweet_fetcher');
function tweet_fetcher(){
<h2>Tweet Fetcher options</h2>
<form method='post' action='options.php' style='margin:0 20px;'>
<?php wp_nonce_field('update-options'); ?>
<p>Twitter UserID:<input type="text" name="tweetID"  value="<?php echo get_option('tweetID'); ?>" <?php echo get_option('tweetID'); ?> />
<input type='hidden' name='action' value='update'/>
<input type='hidden' name='page_options' value='tweetID'/>
<p class='submit'>
<input type='submit' name='Submit' value='Update Options &raquo;'/>

I'm not completely sure what you want, but I noticed with position that echo not always give the right position try to build up a large string and then echo the complete results or just return the results.

like this:

$output .= echo $prefix; $output .= echo $tweetprefix; $output .= echo $cleaner[0]; $output .= echo $tweetsuffix; $output .= echo $suffix;

return $output

if you want to do it with echo use comma's to seperate the strings like this:

echo $string1, $string2, $string3, etc.
