Javascript issue

I'm trying to call a function from a seperate js file; this works if its on a standalone page, but with other elements in the body of a page, it will not work. i know it has to do with the document.get but not sure how to make it play nice with everything else on the page

(this is simply pulling a twitter feed and displaying it)

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document.get).ready(function () {
	$('#twitter').twitterfeed('facebook', {
		limit: 10
	});
});
</script>

<div id="twitter"></div>

Open in new window

I knew that you can call functions included in a separate .js file like this, even including other customized functions:
<script language="JavaScript" src="myJSCode.js">
function myFunction1(){
.....
}
</script>

Another cause could be that you have 2 functions with the same name both in the .js file and in the script declaration of the page.

Try also changing '#twitter' to something like '#Gregstwitter' in the user name parameter: sometimes you get redundancies without beeing aware of.
