A little Twitter experiment
Twitter, of course, allows you to embed a timeline widget on your website. But the CMS I’m using — Textpattern — has a plugin that does much the same thing except that it blends in with the style of the site.
I’ve added it to the sidebar here at newsonaut.com so I can experiment with some of its special abilities. I’m hoping I can get it narrowed down so that only certain tweets show up. I’d also like it to be able to display pictures and video.
I’m usually not a big fan of Twitter feeds on other sites, so bear with me.
Update: I’ve changed the feed so that only tweets with #newsonaut show up. That way I can ensure that only tweets I feel are relevant to this website are displayed.
Update 2: The whole thing was kinda meh, so I dropped it.
