Twitter Widget Ready-to-Use: #ActualLivingScientist

One of the hashtags that has been trending with #DressLikeAWoman (see yesterday's post) is the #ActualLivingScientist hashtag, and I decided to make that one into a widget today.

So, what I have done is to create the Twitter widget, and then I published it in my https webspace (thank you, Reclaim Hosting!), and then I created a Canvas page to display the Twitter widget. The whole process takes about 5 minutes, and you can see the widget in action at the Canvas page: Actual Living Scientist.

Even better: now you can just copy-and-paste the iframe snippet which you see there if you want to create your own Canvas page with the actual living scientists' live stream.

You don't need a Twitter account, you don't need your own webspace: just copy-and-paste into your own Canvas webpage, and you will have SCIENCE.

I've also pasted in the Twitter widget below. And if you make your own Canvas Twitter widgets — this Twitter4Canvas Self-Guided Workshop explains how to do that — you can also choose to share them in this way! If you have a Canvas4Twitter example to share, let me know, and I'll spread the word.

Keep on experimenting, everybody!
