Twitter gadget on Gmail

Are you frustrated that you can't access Twitter from work because your IT Department blocked it?

Fret no more because a friend of mine just taught me how one could access Twitter through a Gmail account. Thanks to Twitter Gadgets.

So, here are the steps to get immediate access on Twitter.
  • Open your Gmail account.
  • Go to mail settings.
  • Click "Labs".
  • Click enable beside "Add any gadget by URL"
  • Click on "Save changes".
  • Go back to mail settings.
  • Click "Gadgets".
  • Under the "Add a gadget by its URL", type http://www.twittergadget.com/gadget_gmail.xml.
  • Refresh your gmail account.
If you noticed the "TwitterGadget" box at the bottom left side of your gmail account, then, you're ready to start tweeting away by logging in and authorizing the application.

Oh, by the way, if the gadget box is too small for you, you can click on the word "TwitterGadget" to make it bigger.

Enjoy tweeting!
