How to display Tweets on webpage.   Possible jQuery conflict

Geez, I can't believe I have to ask this question ... but I'm stuck.

I want to display a simple list of two or three tweets in the footer of my page.

I tried the basic Twitter app, but it's in a "box" I can't get rid of.

Then I found a nice jQuery solution http://juitter.com/
, but I THINK there is a jQuery conflict problem.  

I've solved jQuery conflicts before and I know you have to switch out $ with jQuery - or something.

QUESTION 1
Any recommendations for JavaScript or jQuery to add a few tweets to website pages (not blog)?  Tweets automatically update and scroll/repeat.


OR to use http://juitter.com/


QUESTION 2
Where can I find a user-friendly jQuery conflict tutorial?
(I've looked through a dozen jQuery conflict search results.  All very confusing.)



Background
We use this version of jQuery:
jquery-1.4.2.min.js
Juitter uses
jquery-1.3.1.min.js

Our site is built on a theme.  

Thanks, April

P.S.  
Couldn't find support forum for jutter

These guys provide you a simple solution:
http://tweet.seaofclouds.com/

Like this:
<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" src="tweet/jquery.tweet.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
    jQuery(function($){
        $(".tweet").tweet({
            username: "seaofclouds",
            join_text: "auto",
            avatar_size: 32,
            count: 3,
            auto_join_text_default: "we said,", 
            auto_join_text_ed: "we",
            auto_join_text_ing: "we were",
            auto_join_text_reply: "we replied to",
            auto_join_text_url: "we were checking out",
            loading_text: "loading tweets..."
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
