Why use it?
If you're not familiar with Twitter, it's a free social networking/micro-blogging service that lets users send and read small (140 character or less) 'tweets' (messages). Those messages can be sent via the Twitter website, your phone, or other methods and received by others via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS, email, or in our case — on your own web page. It is a quick and easy way to get your message out onto a variety of channels. The Mavtweets widget above is displaying tweets from University Relations (you can have your own custom avatar). Maybe MavTweets could work for you!
How to use it
username: "yourusername", // supply username - leave comma and quotes
count: 5, // how many tweets to display - leave comma
loading_text: " loading tweets..."

Don't make changes that compromise the designed function or appearance of the widgets. They should look, and behave, the same way no matter where they appear. Changes to font sizes, link colors, and/or other elements cause uncertainty for users, and compromise the visual and functional design that is part of the UNO brand. So please, use the widgets only as they are designed, and only for their intended uses. These widgets are only for use in the right-hand column (04 Main Content Right Column) of the WTA_01 template.
