How to add Twitter to my blog

    I’m new to Twitter and wondering how I can add my Twitter updates to a sidebar widget. I copied and pasted the code from a twitter widget into my wordpress widget, but all I end up with is a link to “follow me on twitter.”

    Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks!

    Didn’t help me. I can’t get it to work. Followed the directions to a t and nada.

    It does work, I just did it in my own test blog for another post.

    Post your twitter feed URL here.

    On a related note, I followed the instructions in the FAQ and it worked. But it’s not displaying any updates from when I first created the widget. Any ideas?

    The RSS feeds are cached, meaning that it takes a while for them to update.

    I don’t seem to be able to get Twitter to work, actually none of the RSS feeds work. Any idea?

    Can you post the RSS feeds you’re trying to use here, please?

    In addition, the blog linked in your profile does not link to a wordpress.com blog. Can you specify which blog you’re asking about?

    I tried to use this feed & it appeared on the blog but it stated that an error occurred. Help?

    If you are hosted here at wordpress.COM, please provide a link to your blog. And consider linking it in your user name as explained in the sticky at the top of the forum.

    If you are hosted here, the problem is that you must replace the word “friends” in the link with the word “user” (no quotes)

    You can’t use your Friend feed. You can only use your own as far as I’m aware.

    Hi, I’m new to all of this. Regarding Twitter, I followed the instructions everyone has been recommending but my blog says “An error has occurred; the feed is probably down. Try again later.”

    It’s said that for ages. Is this related to how long it takes for Twitter updates to appear on WP or is there something else I should be doing?

    Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.
