Twitter has been removed from the sidebar. I was hoping to use it as a replacement for the now defunct "Sideblog." (If anybody has suggestions, or knows of something better, please leave info in the "comments." ) I first installed the Flash version of Twitter, but found it didn't display properly in some browsers on certain operating systems. Next I installed the Java version. Now Java usually works quite well with Blogspot blogs, but I had a lot of trouble tweaking Twitter. Finally, late last night, I got it to the point where I thought it was working well... not quite. Display problems in versions of IE, especially on WinME and Opera browsers. It also stopped some browsers dead in their tracks, i.e., the full page couldn't load or would only load after several hits of the "refresh" arrows. One thing I've learned in my X number of years blogging: anything that drags your page during loading means X number of readers you've lost... forever! Remember, not everyone has a brand new computer, not everyone is on DSL, cable or satellite!
I like Twitter: maybe someone has found a way to get it to load quickly?
