Twitter Balloon Widget Badge

January 30th, 2008 by Avatar X Leave a reply »


So you like Twitter?, would you like to have a more personalized Twitter badge? and you would like to be able to place that badge everywhere?

Then you need Korelab Twitter Balloon.

The idea is pretty simple, you put a picture of you or your favorite Picon (personal icon) and that way what you tweet will be twittered inside the badge as if it were said by you or your Picon.

here you can see a example of it with me:

This example speaks by itself (pun intended), so if you like the idea of placing this badge on your Myspace, blog and other social networks just go here:

  1. This is an excellent way to add a personal touch to the generally boring box style widget.
    Good find!

    Thanks @Avatar, same here! I’ve had my eye on this widget for my blog for some time. I’ve seen it in various blogs and all have the same issue.(Btw, I didn’t realize your post was written back in January.) I’ll look for your update. Thank you:)

    Does anyone know why this widget isn’t working anymore? I love the style but cant figure out why its down?

    It continues to say “sorry, cannot load messages” am I doing something incorrectly?

  12. fjordz says:

    hi there.. mine too… an error message always appear saying that it cannot load messages.. may I know how can I correct it? please do message me regarding this one.. love to use this badge!

    Why oh why can’t I upload an image??

  14. Hmmm…I must be missing some step because I cannot get the balloon to show MY Twitters instead of Korelab’s twitters. It’s probably really simple, but I have tried tweaking the coding and inputting my twitter address to no avail. If you know what I might be doing wrong, please email me to let me know! Thanks so much.
