Help needed: avatar and Twitter feed

By Steve Outing

Can anyone advise me on a Twitter feed challenge? See the comic avatar of me in the upper right of this blog page? There’s a talk balloon, and I’d like to get my latest post from Twitter to show inside that balloon. (That is, the balloon is updated with new text whenever I post a new tweet.)

Anyone got any suggestions for pulling that off? Thanks!!

    I’m by no means an expert on this, but here’s how I would do it:

    After you tweak your avatar image to remove that current text, set that image as the background image in that div. Then go here:

    http://twitter.com/badges/html

    And grab code for a single update feed, and paste it into that div. You’ll have to edit the styles a bit to get the alignment right, and remove the extra stuff you don’t need.

    Let me know if that helps, or doesn’t…
