    I've been searching for ages and can't find how to do this. What I want are tweets from a twitter account to feed a "news feed" on a page on my wordpress site. I installed a plugin called "tweets as posts" but don't know what to do next.
    I found other plugins that can put a twitter feed in the sidebar (widgets) but I want I just want to generate a news feed on a page called "news" fed by Twitter tweets.
    I'm using twentyten theme and have set up a child theme. Thanks in advance!

    I found a sort of solution. Still not exactly what I want, but better than nothing!

    UBER NOOBIE INSTRUCTIONS:
    Go to Twitter account / settings/ widgets
    choose your options - e.g. for appearance etc
    including setting your Twitter username and domain name of website where you want to embed your Twitter profile timeline
    Then press save and it generates the code for you.
    Then paste this code into your wordpress page making sure tab is on HTML not VISUAL
    and then click at the start of it and press the 'code' button
    then click at the end of this code and click '/code' button
    update and the Twitter feed appears on your page (rather than in a widget area)

    Problem is it's very narrow - although you can set height in Twitter can't see how to set width, so it just positions left of the page.

    Would like to have got a news feed went across the whole page up to the side bar so if anyone knows how to do this I'd be v grateful! :)
