    Hello...is there any way this twetter widget can be used in WP.com....?

    https://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets/widget_list

    Its the known as "Join the conversation" widget....this one is yet more help as we follow our own people, and its kind of offset to keep logging (or going to Twitter) to see what's up with the people...everything will be condensed into WP page...with the new FB box....this will be an great enhancement....don't know if its possible...but wanted to ask about...

    The blog I need help with is crfreeridedownhill.com.

  2. No, it uses code that's insecure, so we can't use it here. Right now we have the prefab Twitter widget, or you can hand-code one in HTML (no javascript) and put it in a text widget.

  3. Blogger.com uses it, so it's probably okay for WordPress.com to use too. You just can't use it right now as WordPress.com hasn't added support for it.

    OMG....i think I found a different way for it... :)

    This is how you get the ATOM feed from a list of Twitter....

    http://api.twitter.com/1/account name/lists/list/statuses.atom

    You type this into the RSS widget in your WP.com and change the "strong" words with your names and voila....there you have it....

    Will not work as I would love to, that each link and person can be found separetly within the Tweet, but at least this is much better than nothing at all.... :)
