Anyone do a twitter plugin?

Just curious if anyone has done something like this yet. Couldn’t find
anything on the plugins page (btw - full of spam comments, uggh).

I’m not sure what level of integration you are looking for, but
twitter has html badges for your current tweets, friends etc. Just
put that html content in the body of a Static.

Doh, that would do it. Keep thinking of badges in the old sense of
“Hey guess what I’m using!”.

The badge approach is definitely the way to go with these sorts of
things. Anything where a sidebar has to go off to another site to
build its fragment is guaranteed to make page rendering slow. Also,
it’s guaranteed to force the expiry time of the page down towards
zero.

I’m seriously thinking of setting a ‘rule’ sidebars should contain no
content that needs to change on a schedule other than that of the blog
itself - if you need something that does change more frequently, write
the javascript and populate the fragment asynchronously. The catch is
that there’s, currently, no way to make an AJAX call to a sidebar’s
controller, but be assured it’s something I want to be able to do.
