    Please add Tumblr and Twitter support please. Perhaps sidebar badges. Even better for Tumblr would be the ability to include Tumblr posts as WordPress entries.

    Thanks for the request! I would imagine that if enough people want this, then the Staff might consider it! If not, don’t be too discouraged!

    @tomkim: I don’t think we’ll ever have Tumlr posts as WordPress entries because that would leave wordpress WAAAY open to spam. You can go in the other direction and have Tumlbr display your WordPress posts.

    My Tumblr is completely autogenerated off of other sites I contribute to like wordpress, digg, delicious, and stumbleupon.

    Best bet would be to send in feedback. Also I do believe we can do Twitter via RSS. Link. I found that by searching just for reference.

    Hope this helps,

    I’d like to see Twitter badge support. RSS is too slow to update which defeats the purpose of Twitter. Also, the badges are well designed and part of the Twitter appeal.

    Twitter is sufficiently trendy that its inclusion is probably only a matter of time. I guess they’re still negotiating the terms.

    There’s a method linked to up above on how to use the RSS feed from Twitter. You can put that into an RSS widget for the time being as a workaround.

    The suggestion is also listed to send in a feedback and request this feature along with why you think it’s important.

    Yes please, that’s what I am looking for. A good twitter widget on *.wordpress.com!

    The procedure is to send a feedback into staff listing the reasons why you want to see these features introduced.

    In the meantime, use an RSS widget and link it to your twitter feed. It’s a little slow, but it works.

    Using the RSS feed, Twitter can almost function as a sideblog. Kind of.

    reasons ?

    1) Inform your audience what you are doing and when
    2) Inform your audience what did you do in the past or who you was communicating
    3) Cute personalization makes your audience feel you are near him
    4) Be on top web 2.0 technologies

    look at ginatonic.net sidebar. works very cool

    You don’t seem to comprehend that:
    it’s staff who make the decisions;
    it’s staff that need to hear your reasons; and
    that you are supposed to send them to staff in a feedback on Monday.

    Copying and pasting the same string of reasons into different threads for different features you want to see added is ineffectual. It simply wastes the time of volunteers to have to keep telling you the process that you must use over and over again.

    I’ve seen good reasons for adding twitter support, but are you guys really considering the request, because I’ve read both threads and it looks as if you’re avoiding answering/resolving the request.
