Twitter Recent Posts Widget, The Rare Widget Ever!

twitter-recent-post-widget- As I promised in my post on Feedburner Recent Posts Widget I am here to share the trick of adding a Twitter Recent Posts Widget. This widget will undoubtly add a pro touch to your blog.Many Newbie bloggers use a JavaScript Recent post widget to there blogs but to keep your blog distinct you must either choose Feedburner or Twitter. Twitter is a nice place to attract a huge traffic if used intelligently. Adding the twitter recent post widget will surely increase the number of your followers and indirectly the traffic to your blog. So now before wasting any more time, lets get to work!

This widget requires two things :
  • A twitter account ( Which is Obvious :D )

Sign up for twitter Feed

For your latest posts to be shown in twitter widget you must submit your RSS feeds to a free web service called twitterfeed They will post your latest blog posts along with the title and description in your twitter account for free! You just sit back and relax.
This is what you need to do,

Step 1

Visit twitterfeed

Step 2

Create an OPen ID to sign up for a twitterfeed account
OpenId is an Id just like your blogger Id that lets you log into thousand’s of web services without the need of signing up for an account. In short its a free ticket that lets you take a complete ride of thousands of remarkable websites that accept OpenId and luckily blogger and twitterfeed is one of them.

Step 3

Once you have created your OpenId, log into twitterfeed Then click on the button that says Create new Feed

  • A form is what you will see next :
  • First and foremost click at the link saying Authenticate At Twitter This will tell twitter whether twitterfeed is allowed to access your twitter account or not. After authenticating, fill up the form by following the steps below,
  • In RSS Feed URL type this,

Remember to replace the URL in red with your blog URL
You can also add your Feedburner Feed URL , which will look like this,

Again make sure to replace the text in red with your feed title
  • Set the Update Frequency to Every hour and Post up to to 1
  • Write your Blog title in the box next to Prefix each tweet with and check the box just below it
  • For Shorten Link through choose TinyURL
  • Finally check the box at bottom to activate your tweets
  • Hit Create and you are Done!

Step 4

After your tweet feeds are activated you will see a page as shown below :

It will take 30 minutes or less for your feed status to be activated. During this time read further on how to get a Twitter widget for displaying your latest posts in it.

Step 5


twitter-for-blogger You will have four options where you can add your twitter widget but since I share blogger Tips and tricks I will go for blogger :)
Click Continue to set your twitter widget. You will come across a configuration page as shown below :

select-settings-and-copy-tw You have the choice of showing up to 20 posts on your widget but I would suggest just 5 for better page load time. I would also suggest not to give a title to this widget, we will give it a title later on.
You have two choices to add your cool looking twitter widget to your blog either by clicking the Add to blogger button or grab the code link. I love to add codes to my template myself so I will go for grab the code

Step 6

Copy the code they provide you:


  • Note:- Don’t worry about that Hot tip! I am here to take all that headache :D

Step 7

Log into your blogger account and go to Layout > Page Elements

  • Click on Add a gadget,
  • Choose HTML/JavaScript
  • Paste the code in this widget and give it a title like “Recent Posts” or “Latest Stories
And your are Done! with a beautiful and unique Recent posts widget .
Feel free to ask tough questions Come forward baby
