Neat way to configure a standard Twitter widget

Reading Howard Kurtz's preview of a TV interview with Game Change makers, the Twitter widget on the page caught my eye, I think because it was updating fairly quickly.

It's just a standard Twitter search widget provided by Twitter, but it's set up to show tweets from three different media writers:
  • Kurtz, writer for The Daily Beast and host of CNN's Reliable Sources
  • David Carr, media and culture columnist for The New York Times,and
  • David Folkenflik, media correspondent for NPR

I like it because it doesn't hawk only Beast writers, and the three tweeps involved are prolific and good at this Twitter thing.

In case you're one of those people who thinks you can't implement something like this yourself? You can. Don't let anybody tell you that you can't and don't tell yourself that either. And if considering using these kinds of drop-dead simple embeds in a business setting, and somebody thinks you need to waste the time of five people to have a meeting about it? What you do is just laugh.
