We’ve been asked this so many times that I thought I’d just create a simple blog post that I can reference to when people ask.
Although we’re not super fans of having our little Twitter widget on the sidebar (we’re looking into some alternative implementations) it’s very useful for people to easily follow us and tweet news to us that we should review.
The reason is that it’s a bit slow-loading – that is, it requires a bit more of load time than I’m willing to give up as we look into a redesign, but for now it’ll do just fine.
Luckily for all of us it’s free to use and download, from Twitter themselves.
Just head to your Widget Settings and then create a new one. It’ll spit out the code that you need to put in your sidebar:
And that, my friends, is it. Enjoy! Let us know if you use it on your own blog!
