Looks great, but… I’m struggling on how do i FORMAT the text in the twitter feed. Is that a THEME issue or something to do with the Jetpack Twitter plugin. I’m thinking it has something to do with the theme because I see no config possibilities in the Jetpack Twitter plugin.

Hey Eric,

Appreciate your question about styling the Twitter Feed. Well you can simply add the CSS code in your WP Theme to style it. If CSS code seems like ghost to you, then you can Buzz me for my service. 😉

Cheers! 🙂

I wonder if its possible to manually insert the widget, and how?

Yes it is possible, but to make anything widgetized you need to register a sidebar for in WP. Follow the concept in the following article How to add Alert Bar in WordPress Theme

Sorry, I wasn’t clear. At my blog I have one sidebar where I manually have entered code, in the template theme, and their I want to insert the twitter box from Jetpack. Therefore I cant use widgets, in admin, to ad the box, coz it will end up either before or after where I manually have my sidebar.

I’m looking to remove the scrollbar from the Jetpack Twitter Widget, how can I go about doing this?

Logically scrollbars are visible only when content width or height is less. If vertical scrollbar is showing up, then try reducing the number of tweets.
