It’s been almost exactly a year since I wrote a post instructing you how to put a Twitter badge on your blog. Of course nothing stays the same, and Twitter has changed its make-up since, making the above post out of date.
So here is a revised version (and it looks like I’ll have to do the same for some of my other e-courses, too).
First go to your Twitter profile and click on your username at the top right corner to activate the drop-down menu:
Click on ‘Settings’:
Pan down to the bottom:
And click on the ‘Resources’ link:
Select ‘Widgets’ and click on the relevant link:
Choose ‘My Website’:
Then select ‘Profile Widget’:
And you’ll see the default Twitter badge for your tweets. Now you can customise it. Click on ‘Preferences’:
…to select how many entries you wish to show and whether you want a scroll-bar or not. Then click on ‘Appearance’:
…to change the colours within your badge. Click on each coloured square:
…to bring up the menu to programme in your blog’s colour, especially if you know the hex-colour (mine is #7549b1) and then click on ‘done’:
After you’ve selected all the right colours, click on ‘Dimensions’:
…to change the width as the same as your blog’s sidebar, and the desired length. Once you’ve done, click on ‘Finish and Grab Code’:
…and the code will be presented for you to highlight, copy and insert into a Text Widget in your sidebar.
If you want to know how to do that, find the place in the original post where this leaves off, and go on from there.
