Passing checkbox results to Juitter

I'm using Juitter to place some twitter feeds on a webpage. http://juitter.com/
I currently have it working and can manually set feeds to view in the system.js file, these are simply the twitter usernames seperated by commas
I would like to make a series of checkboxes that would allow preselected feeds to be added or removed from the list.
I've managed to make one checkbox that limits the feeds down to that one (from the multiple set in system.js) However I can't work out the syntax for multiple checkboxes (especially as the result needs to be comma separated)

The code I've attached seems to behave a bit weirdly. when it loads it has the full list of feeds specified in system.js. If I tick the Travel South Yorkshire checkbox it limits it to the Travel South Yorkshire feed. If I untick it still does the same (I can kinda understand that) but if I completely reload the page and then tick the Department for Transport checkbox it still only displays the Travel South Yorkshire feed!
<HTML>
	<HEAD>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.1.min.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.juitter.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/system.js"></script>
	</HEAD>
	<BODY>
		<form method="post" id="juitterSearch" action="">
		<p>Travel South Yorkshire: <input type="checkbox" name="TravelSYorks" class="juitterSearch" value="TravelSYorks" /></p>
		<p>Department for Transport: <input type="checkbox" name="transportgovuk" class="juitterSearch" value="transportgovuk" /></p>
		<input type="submit" value="Submit" />
		</form>
		<div id="juitterContainer"></div> 
  	</BODY>
</HTML>

Try using var_dump() to print out the contents of the $_POST array and see if you are receiving the data you expected.

The suggestion pointed me in the right direction, but I then used a completely different desing of page anyway
