I took a look at the twitter widget. Is there any description of what I should put where?

What is meant with: twitter URL?? I do have an account there but never saw the twitter URL???

What is the RSS URL?

Maybe I sound dumb, but I have NO clue what this means.

Twitter recently stopped supporting basic authentication over RSS in favor of OAuth, an authentication method that lets you use applications without giving them your password. You can read more about the change here: http://blog.twitter.com/2010/08/twitter-applications-and-oauth.html

Because of this change, we no longer directly support RSS feeds on Twitter.

  • If you would like to continue using RSS feeds from Twitter accounts, we recommend using a 3rd-party service.
