    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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

      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.
