Hello

I am new to Silverstripe. I am currently trying to embed a Twitter feed in a site. I could write this myself from scratch but it's the kind of thing that someone else is bound to have already done. There is a twitter widget pack available but I'm not sure how to use it...

This page: http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/topics/widgets
...leads to this page: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-widgets#readme
...which says to download a zip from this page http://www.silverstripe.org/widgets-module/
...and there aren't any zips on that page - only links back to the github page. Infinite loop!

What am I supposed to do?

Are widgets only for use with the blog module?

Thanks!
