Hello Experts,

I have seen some gadgets online but they seem to be so slow.
How can i create something as simple as this gadget on this website?

I want to have like the last 3-4 statuses updated on a side bar.

You must get a twitter api key here https://dev.twitter.com/ then you can loop through a user's tweets like this (let me know if you need help or you had something else in mind):
$home_timeline = $twitteroauth->get('statuses/home_timeline', array('count' => 5));  
//print_r($home_timeline);
$html .= '<div class="tweets">';
foreach ($home_timeline as $tweet)
{
$html .= '<div class="tw"><a href="https://twitter.com/#!/'.$_SESSION['username'].'">@'.$_SESSION['username'].'</a>'.$tweet->text.'</div>';
}
$html .= "</div>";
echo $html;
}
