I created a twitter widget and added it to my “sidebar” in my wordpress blog. I discovered along the way that because of the theme I am using my sidebar is actually not on the side! It is hidden in an icon at the top right (looks like a gear) which then toggles displaying the twitter feed appear at the top of the page.
I must remember that what looks pretty might not always be what is most practical! The common dilemma of form versus function.
