2. To search for a public Twitter list, just enter the username of the person who created the list. For example, if you are interested in the Techie-Buzz author list, type keithdsouza(without quotes) in the username field. After that click the button that says Find lists.


3. Go to the preferences tab to customize the widget settings. You can choose to load all tweets as they come or you can, specify a timed interval. Other settings include adding avatars, timestamps and hashtags in the widget.


4. Next, you would want to customize the widget according to the look and feel of your blog. Switch to the appearance tab, and you can start customizing the widget. You can choose the color of the widget, tweets and links according to your style.


The dimensions tab lets you choose a custom size of the widget, and the widget can be completely customized in appearance. After that hit the Grab codebutton and you can integrate the widget in your blog, website or social networking profiles.
