Twitter Widget with No Logo

by mo on 12/24/2010

Since I realized the little twitter widget on the right was defunct (it was linking to bad links, non-posts), I decided to update it. Twitter provides code to give you an embedded widget, but out of the box it looks like this:


Ew, logos. And giant boxes. Ugh.

So I modified the widget code to remove all that nonsense above and below, and JUST display the text of a single tweet. Here’s the code, help yourself:
Twitter Widget No Logo

Then take the code below and put it wherever you want your tweet to be displayed. Don’t forget to change the URL of the script (on line 1) to wherever you hosted it, and to put in your own twitter username instead of mine (line 30):

<script src="[URL OF THE SOURCE CODE]"></script>
new TWTR.Widget({
  version: 2,
  type: 'profile',
  rpp: 1,
  interval: 6000,
  width: 'auto',
  height: 80,
  theme: {
    shell: {
      background: '#ffffff',
      color: '#414b56'
    tweets: {
      background: '#ffffff',
      color: '#414b56',
      links: '#0f82db'
  features: {
    scrollbar: false,
    loop: false,
    live: true,
    hashtags: true,
    timestamp: true,
    avatars: false,
    behavior: 'all'
}).render().setUser('[YOUR TWITTER USERNAME]').start();
