1) Throw all the files in one directory.

2) Make sure you have the dependencies installed, and if you've done anything fun like install them in a user directory, you may have to edit the file to include the search paths.

3) Make sure your cron user has write access to tweets.pkl

4) Set up a cron job that will trigger sidisplay1.py. For most Twitter accounts, something like: 
*/1     *	*	*	*	python /home/display/www/sidisplay1.py

should work just fine. You may need to request whitelisting of your Twitter account.

5) update how.html
