Adding a Twitter feed to Blogspot

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

One of the big things of today is micro-blogging. If you don’t know what it is, think of Facebook, and then think of the status field in Facebook. Strip most of the other functionality away. That’s microblogging. In other words; microblogging is responding to the question “What are you doing right now?”
 
I’ve got an account at Twitter (my nick there is @razumny), and wanted the last two entries to be displayed in the sidebar of my personal blog. Here’s how I did it:
 
First, you’ll want to find the RSS-feed address for your twitter feed. If you go to your twitter feed page, you’ll see a link at the bottom of the sidebar on the right side, like so:
 

 

  1. Log into your Blogspot account, and click the link for Layout for the blog you want to update
  2. Click the “Add a gadget” link
  3. In the pop-up, select to add a feed, then enter the address, and set the number of updates to display, and what to call the field
  4. Place the feed where you want it in your blog
  5. Save

    @Gil: I have found out, and have already scheduled a post to tackle that very subject.
