What do I type under “Title”?

“Title” refers to your widget’s heading. If you fill in “My Recent Tweets”, it will show up as “My Recent Tweets” for your title of the sidebar widget above your tweets.

What do I type under “Your Twitter Username”?

You need to add in your Twitter username here. This plugin will then automatically pull out your most recent tweets straight from the Twitter feed.

What do I do for “Choose # of Tweets to Display”?

The recommended size is 5 tweets, but you can choose as many as you like if you have a long blog page. We’ve added display for up to 20 tweets, due to popular demand.

What do I do for “Display “Follow @[yourtwitterid]”?”

If you choose Yes, the link (Follow@yourtwitterid) will appear under your tweets. This will make it more convenient for people to follow you on Twitter with just one click.
