The Trick to Embedding Your Twitter Timeline into Your Blogger Blog
In theory, it is quite simple: Go to your Twitter page, go to Settings, and click on Widgets. Click "Create New" and configure your widget as you would like (add your user name and play around with the height, theme, and link color). Put in the domain where you would like to have your timeline show up, and click "Create Widget."
