Twitter Fan box


If you have a page in Facebook about your blog and want to show the Facebook Fan Box with the recent updates and fans, just activate this widget or insert this line of code anywhere in your theme:

<?php twitter_fan_box('USER'); ?>

If you want to change updates other parameters like max. number of followers, width, height, lang or css properties, just do this:

<?php twitter_fan_box('USER', 'FOLLOWERS', 'WIDTH', 'HEIGHT', 'LANG', 'CSS'); ?>
