In this short video for self-hosted WordPress blogs, we walk you through the process of adding Twitter updates to the sidebar of your widget-enabled theme, using the Wickett Twitter plugin

I also developed a similar wordpress plugin here: http://www.ericlightbody.com/2009/07/19/tweetiepie-for-wordpress/
It links your hash tags (#), @replies, and is quite speedy.
Twitter updates can easily optimized on the sidebar using some other methods too like Twittercounter.com,remote twitter etc.
This is also awesome system.
Excellent, thanks a lot for the video :)
Really helpful – many thanks!
I really want to know this more..if someone will give me a simple idea how to start..
I don’t have enough time to spare for this..thanks.
But I have already a website to start on..
As long as you already have a Twitter account established, the video gives you all the information you need to know. Go ahead and stop the video after each step, following the steps indicated one at a time. You can do it. :)
I noticed that the blog linked to your username is a blog on WordPress.com. These instructions are for self-hosted WordPress blogs. For help getting this feature working on a WordPress.com blog, visit the sister tutorial here. You can also find some printed instructions here.
I was lookin for such a video tutorial..
Yeah, that’s good!
Hurray! Where’s that Twitterer download link? Can’t wait!
Thanks a lot, now I am having a problem with my changing of appearance of my website..I mean the website design. So, I cannot apply the Twitter sidebar yet until it is fixed.
Very helpful. Video tutorials have always been easier for me to follow. I am bookmarking WordPress.tv now! Thanks so much.
I was able to install on my site.
Though, it seems to be slightly different than the video (new version, I guess.)
The video definitely helped.
Unfortunately i’ve got this for the last few hours. Error: Twitter did not respond. Please wait a few minutes and refresh this page.
Have even reset my twitter name, username etc. Still no luck. Any ideas?
If you see connection issues with Twitter, please check with Twitter’s status; sometimes connections to Twitter don’t work because of high traffic or maintenance windows.
