Twitter Widget HTML

  1. Hi, I have tried countless times to use the Official Twitter widget HTML code in my blog (through the text widget on the sidebar), and it just won't work. This is the url to the page I am using: http://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets/widget_profile.
    This is the HTML code that I am supposed to copy & paste into the text widget (note that I have no experience with HTML coding so don't laugh at me if I missed something completly obvious):

    <script src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script>
    <script>
    new TWTR.Widget({
    version: 2,
    type: 'profile',
    rpp: 5,
    interval: 30000,
    width: 'auto',
    height: 300,
    theme: {
    shell: {
    background: '#9e989e',
    color: '#ffffff'
    },
    tweets: {
    background: '#ffffff',
    color: '#1437c7',
    links: '#4b7ed6'
    }
    },
    features: {
    scrollbar: true,
    loop: false,
    live: false,
    hashtags: true,
    timestamp: true,
    avatars: true,
    behavior: 'default'
    }
    }).render().setUser('thebullmhs').start();
    </script>

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

  2. sorry, forgot to mention that when I post this code into the text widget box all that shows up is the words from the code, not the widget itself.

  3. Excuse me but the ONLY Twitter widget that we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blog like the one linked to your user name is found here > Appearance > Widgets
    You can also use a Twitter follow button and your can set up Publicize for Twitter
    And you can enable social network sharing buttons on your posts and index pages.

  4. Sometimes bloggers are not aware of the differences between WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG and they don't know what they find on the internet is only for WordPress.org self hosted installs. Please read this entry fro clarity: WordPress.COM vs WordPress.ORG: The Differences
