This is related to the Twitter status you see on my homepage.
I was browsing around, when I came across Aaron's on adding Twitter to a Drupal site. Since I am in the process of redesigning my site, I was a little more aware of the
closure variable and hence I commented so on his post. He nudged me on his respone through Twitter.
Thus, I created the Twitter Block module. It is quite minor and straight forward at this moment and advanced modules have already been coded. (See the modules download page over at Drupal.org).
Download module: Twitter Block
I am yet to put the license files, but it is provided under GPL. The installation is simple - just copy to your
sites/all/modules folder. You should get the Twitter Block menu in the admin/settings once you enable it. It lets you configure:
Once you install and configure this module, you can sytle it by lathcing on to the block-twitterblock class. You can see the result of my current theming on the Twitter Block.
