If you’ve got a Blogspot.com blog, you can add your Twitter feed to the sidebar very, very easily. The feed will list your last 5 tweets, as well as the time it was posted and link to follow if the reader chooses. I’ve seen several variations of this code and its presentation, but the one I use on my own blog, and the one I use when installing blogs for other people, is the simplest version possible. Why? Because I don’t want the script slowing the loading down and I don’t want the widget itself to look wonky in different browsers or screen resolutions. If you’d like to add your recent tweets to your blogger sidebar, this is how you do it:
First, you'll need to edit the code:
Here's the code:
<h2 style="display:none;" class="sidebar-title">Twitter Updates</h2>
<a id="twitter-link" style="display:block;text-align:right;" href="http://twitter.com/ashokbhanwal"></a>
Now you’re ready to install
- Log into your Dashboard.
- Click on 'Layout'
- Go to the sidebar in question and click 'add a gadget'
- Copy and paste your new code into the box.
- Click 'save'
- Position the widget wherever you’d like – most people put it somewhere near the top. If you’d like to see how mine looks you can take a look at my blog.
