Add Quick Twitter Functionality to Your Topical Site

Plenty of folks add their Twitter activity to their blogs. Want to take it up a notch for your topic- or location-specific Web site?

All you’ve got to do it grab the Twitter RSS feed for a search term and add it to a text/html box on your site. I’ve got a feed for “Government 2.0,” just check the right column of my page to see what it looks like. You could do it for “San Francisco,” “social media,” “Barack Obama” or anything else you can imagine and that people are tweeting about.

Please let us know about your sites and new Twitter feeds in the comments!
