<br /><div id="twitter_update_list"><br /></div><br First, decide where about on your page you want your last tweet to display. Then paste following html code there.

Step 2:
Next you need to put these 2 lines of JavaScript below the code in step 1. On the 2nd line of code where it says prajeeshkk.json, you need to replace prajeeshkk with your twitter username.
  1. "text/javascript" src="http://twitter.com/javascripts/blogger.js">  
  2.   
  3. "text/javascript" src="http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/prajeeshkk.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=1">
