update FB with Twitter.

see that sidebar with the title "my updates". Those are simultaneously updated with my Facebook shoutouts. Courtesy of Twitter.

If you want to integrate this nifty gadget into your blog. Pls do so.

First you gotta log in to Facebook and add the Twitter application.

Then you'll need to enable Twitter automatically updating your FB shoutouts.

Create a new sidebar for HTML/Script. Now add this into your sidebar:

< @ div id="twitter_div">
< @ ul id="twitter_update_list">< @ /ul>< @ /div>
< @ script src="http://twitter.com/javascripts/blogger.js" type="text/javascript">< @ /script>
< @ script src="http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/username.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=5" type="text/javascript">< @ /script>

(remove the red @)

Edit the 5 with the number of updates you wish to see listed.
Edit the username with your username in Twitter.

Voila, you're done.

Now the only problem is your twitter updates will show in both FB and here. But if you update your shoutout on FB, it won't show in twitter and on your blogspot.

If only it worked both ways.
