Help - Twitter friends_timeline in sidebar (4 posts)

    I have been searching the net and cannot find a solution that works - hopefully you guys will be able to help.
    I currently use the Twitter Tools plugin to display my Twitter feed in my sidebar.
    The limitation of this is that it only shows my tweets and not my full friends timeline, so some of it does not make sense out of context.
    I have been trying to find a plugin that allows the showing of my friends_timeline - which will show all my tweets, all my friends tweets and the tweets sent to me - it will then make more sense to he reader.
    However, the friends_timeline is behind authentication at Twitter so I need to find either a plugin or some code that will authenticate so that I can pull that feed.
    Apparently it used to be easier but Twitter made some changes which mean that authentication is now required.
    I may be missing a trick, but it seems that if people can write apps like Twitterific that can pull all my Twitter info, then it stands to reason that a plugin could do the same.
    I am running wordpress 2.7.1 - I understand the basic of code and CSS but am by no means an advanced user.
    Please help - if only to tell me I am being a dufus and its easy to do.
