Nice tutorial. Very simple and easy to understand :)
Thanks. Liked this and was looking for one.
PS: I had to install the widget first. Just to let you know.
Can we have this widget/plugin available to the open source portion of the WordPress community?
I am researching the possibility of transferring my websites to WordPress it will take a lot of work but adding widgets will be a lot easier. I haven’t started using twitter yet but I’m glad to see a well done tutorial on adding it.
Very nice. Easy tutorial. I hope to see it as either a plugin or a default feature in the next installment of WordPress.
What is the minimum version of WordPress you need to do it this way?
Great tutorial! Simply put and easy to follow. Love it!
Please make this Twitter add on my site…I can not wait for it, xoxoxo excited.
I really like this tutorial, and the whole idea behind WordPress TV actually! One question though. What is the exact name of the Twitter plugin/widget you used. There is not a plugin built in to my version of WordPress.
The plugin shown in the WordPress TV is called Wickett Twitter Widget. It can be downloaded from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wickett-twitter-widget/
Looks great, looking forward to a wordpress.org version.
You are great man.
How do I get the widget to appear in the widget menu? I’ve downloaded a twitter plugin and it isn’t showing up…love the vids by the way, great for newbies like me
I’ve been having good luck with the Twitter for WordPress plugin available here: http://rick.jinlabs.com/code/twitter/
There isn’t a built in Twitter widget.
This is not a widget in my wordpress either so this video doesnt help. Would be nice to know if this is a plugin or if Im missing something within wordpress.
How do you change the font color on this in the edit…thanks
Using self-hosted WordPress, you can do some sleuthing to find the classes used in the widget’s output and alter your CSS file to change the colors.
If you’re using WordPress.com, you can do the same, but you’ll need a Custom CSS upgrade for your blog.
The Twitter widget does not show up on my widget page, is there any reason why this is happening?
Yes please anyone could teach us now how to put twitter on my side bar there is no Twitter plugin/widget that we might used.
Since I’m seeing a lot of comments asking where the widget is located or that you can’t find it, I just want to remind everyone that the tutorial above references a feature that is standard to WordPress.com blogs.
To use it on a self-hosted WordPress blog, you’ll have to (as explained above) install the Wickett Twitter Widget, which has been kindly provided for self-hosted blogs.
Alvin (see above) gets points for answering everyone’s question before I did.
We’ve just added an alternate version of the video for self-hosting WordPress users
i use twitter and don’t know how to switch it to wordpress.. bye watching this video now i know to switch it..
very usefull thanks :)
How do I Twitter my Flickr photos?
How you put a wiget from twitter on to the side bar?
There’s no way to include the Twitter default widget on WordPress.com right now; the method outlined in the video is the provided way to include your Twitter feed in your sidebar.
Twitter is not simply status updates! Twitter is a place where you can market your brand or yourself in way to captivate and socially interact with your followers. Twitter, in essence, is really about building online relationships with your followers.
how to change user? i have the widget but was configure with the wordpress twitter..how can i change it to my twitter?
You can select the Twitter user used by changing the widget settings in Appearance > Widgets.
If you want to display your followers without entering your password, try the Twitter Follower Widget
I have followed all instruction this does not work any ideas
