Custom Twitter Feed Using Javascript

If you build websites, then you’re probably accustomed to integrating custom Twitter feeds into your projects. You were also probably the first to panic when you found out that Twitter was implementing new restrictions (via their version 1.1 API release) on what was able to access your stream(s), leading to a lot of broken scripts and gaping holes in webpages where beautifully crafted Twitter feeds used to live.

Needing a solution for a project and not wanting to settle for Twitter’s bloated widget (let alone the havoc it’d wreak on the site design), I came across the Twitter Fetcher project by Jason Mayes. It is by far the easiest to implement with the added functionality and flexibility.
