Doesnt work for me, im using WorldStar theme by themzee. i have filled in every field. how does it not work? it just blank, not only that, if i put any other widget under «twitter profile widget» they all disapear. In other words if i put this widget at the top, it will automatically crash/hide every other widget under it. i would still like to use it as it looks very cool. please help me if you can, i will change my rating from 1 start to 5 if it works.
