Madoff Twitter stream

In the sidebar, just below “My other sites” is a new widget titled “Madoff Twitter stream.”

It displays the last 10 posts from Twitter about Madoff. Click the title to view all of them at Twitter search or click one to view it.

Widgets like these are one reason I upgraded to the new theme here. Setting this up literally took about 60 seconds, something which was not possible with the old non-widgety theme.

Also, under each post now is a “Share This” button. Click it to get a popup of dozens of sites to share the post on. The “Social Web” tab lists social networking sites, “Post” lists Blogger, blogs, Twitter, and more, while “Email” does just that. This also installed effortlessly, another great WordPress plugin from Alex King.
