    I can't seem to get the Twitter widget to work for as you describe in #1 : You can display a single twitter status. Am I doing something incorrect? It seems straight forward, I just copy the url of the tweet and paste it in the widget. But all I get is a weird link. It seems to work fine when I use the #2 method and show my Twitter stream, but I'd like to use the single status. Any ideas?

    Hello Rooster47,

    I did check your form "Quit Barking!" and it seems the tweet URL needs to be updated. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please use the following URL in your twitter widget and that should solve your problem:  https://twitter.com/BabaORiley71/statuses/540275395418157057 

    I cloned your form and changed the URL. It seems to display the tweet correctly. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
