That twitter widget in my previous post is not the method I ended up using. Sorry if I misled anyone. 

I ended up using the embed code from the Twitter widgets page and pasting it into a gadget "shell" ( a premade xml file that you remove a line from, as indicated by the author, and replace it with your embed code). The xml file is uploaded to the google site from More/Manage Sites/Attachments or any place on the web that you can upload to, to make it available by url. When you insert the gadget into a google web page you Insert using a URL and select your customized gadget.

Guess I should make a screen cast, right?

I've used this method successfully and it's not too painful to set up.

Twitter Widget

I'm not sure where I found it so I'm unable to credit the author properly, other than to say Thanks!

Hi Luis,

I'd be interested to learn an easier way to pull a Twitter feed directly into a Google site. A slightly different workaround would be to embed a feed via another tool. Donna Sullivan-MacDonald created a Storify of her tweets to the SLJ Leadership Summit, and I just added it to our VSLA site with just the Storify html embed code:

Anyone have an easier solution or a different workaround?

Hi list,
Has anyone else attempted to insert a Twitter feed into a GAFE Google Site?

The bottom line is that you need to upload the Twitter Widget code in an XML file to a PRIVATE Google Sites account.
Has anyone out there been successful with an easier solution?
