=== Usage ===

  1. Get JQuery. In these examples, we use Google's AJAX Libraries API.
  2. include jQuery and jquery.tweet.js files in your template's <head>.
    <script language="javascript" src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script language="javascript" src="/tweet/jquery.tweet.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  3. Also in <head>, Initialize tweet! on page load with your Username and other options
    <script type='text/javascript'>
                join_text: "auto",
                avatar_size: 32,
                count: 3,
                auto_join_text_default: "we said,",
                auto_join_text_ed: "we",
                auto_join_text_ing: "we were",
                auto_join_text_reply: "we replied to",
                auto_join_text_url: "we were checking out",
                loading_text: "loading tweets..."
  4. In <body>, include a placeholder for your tweets. They'll get loaded in via JSON. How fancy!
    <div class="tweet"></div>
  5. Style with our stylesheet in <head>, or modify as you like!
    <link href="jquery.tweet.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
