I have just tried out the Twitter Module, it does what it says, however, I am looking for a widget which I can drop into a set of pages, not to create a separate page. The other Twitter Widget seems to be a add-on of the blog module, I might be wrong.

could anyone point me to the right direction please? If say I need implement twitter php api library, how do I construct the twitter feed into silverstripe dataobject, so that I can separate the logic away from the template(.ss pages)

Format of the feed:

RT @WebBasedApps Eric Schmidt on technology, innovation & the global economy
about 2 hours ago from web

RT @NASA Weather could be an issue, but we're targeting 8:20a ET for launch of a Delta II from Cape Canaveral -
about 2 hours ago from web

Have alook at the blog twitter widget - even if you are not using widgets you could copy the functionality from that widget to your Page.php file (and the related html for to your Template file).

Or you could use a jQuery based approach:
For my Website I'm using the coda twitter plugin ( It's really easy to setup, and if you only want it on certain pages, you could always add a boolean/checkbox to your page that will then be used to decide whether or not to include the twitter feed.
