    I wasn't even able to complete installation of this due to it's severe unusability. Aside from sending you to the website to view screenshots (which then don't exist), they make it /very/ unclear how exactly to install the plugin. To configure the widget, they send you to a link that doesn't work, then when I went to the main page to try and figure it out without the direct link I had to create an account, then tried to add the widget to my account. I added twitter to the "social bar" 3 times but it would never take. Ultimately I just went with another plugin, one that was a clean and straight-forward *actual* widget.

    Thanks a lot for the review. I'm a new wordpress user and would need your help with the *actual* widget please.

    Ah, yes. Twitter has their own widget, and I figure if any of them are going to not break, it's the one written and managed by Twitter, right?

    So much better.

    Log into your twitter account, and click the settings icon in the upper right hand corner (it's the image of a cog). Click "settings," then on the following page click "widgets" on the left-hand side. Click "Create new" which will take you to a tab where you can configure a live feed for embedding. Once you finish designing yours and save it, twitter will provide a bit of embed code. To use it in your widgets, simply use a text widget and put that code in the main text area.

    Viola!
