Blogger: Follow the instructions on the official Twitter badge maker.

Typepad: Follow the instructions on the official Twitter badge maker.

WordPress: You have many widget/plugin options. The one I use for Wade on Birmingham is Twitter Tools. But you have hundreds more from which to choose.

Any site: If you’re feeling particularly saucy, you can try Twitter’s widget generator, which lets you pick the account, the colors and the size, then gives you the HTML code to copy and paste into your template. See the example at right. And check out how quickly our pal Josh (@joshgrenon) added it to his blog, Positive Programmer.

Advanced: If you know your way around CSS and coding, take a look at some truly outstanding ways to show off your tweets on your site.
