Embedding a Twitter Feed

You can embed a twitter feed – your own or a hashtag you like to follow – into your blog by creating a widget in twitter, copying and pasting the embed code here, into the ‘text’ field of your blog. You can also paste the embed code into the ‘text widget’ as I’ve done on the left of this blog (go to the dashboard, select widgets, find the text widget and drag it to your sidebar).

Below: Here’s how the feed looks in your blog (you’ll notice it’s scrollable and allows viewers to tweet to you!)
