    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.

      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 able to install on my site.

    Though, it seems to be slightly different than the video (new version, I guess.)

    The video definitely helped.

    Thanks

    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?
