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
