Windows Live Spaces and Twitter Counter

Useful Blog on adding TwitterCounter to Windows Live Space. Many Thanks to Paul Galvin for putting this together for me.


Windows Live Spaces and Twitter Counter

I was DM’d a message from twitter today and thought I’d blog the answer.

The question is: “Hey Paul, quick one for you,how did you get the twitter counter into your live space as the script code is blocked when saved Thx”

I did this by adding a custom html widget to my live spaces page and using the little code snippet:

<a href=""   

   title="TwitterCounter for @pagalvin">   

   <img src=""     




        alt="TwitterCounter for @pagalvin">




This uses a version of the twitter counter widget interface that gets past the windows live censor thing that we all hate so much and wish would get a bad case of poison ivy.
