Trying out Tweetboard

I'm trying out Tweetboard (, which 140WARE kindly sent me an invite to (  It's still in alpha, like the founders declare, however, it looks like it's ready to be deployed in public.

I had no real chance to play with, however, the first problem I got into, was the problem of putting the script into my Blogger page.  

The Blogger doesn't accept either

<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>


<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

Well, it might accept it for a different theme profile, but for the one which can customized by drag and drop of the blocks of data, you cannot put this in.

So I had to rewrite it in a little bit different form here:

<script type='text/javascript'>
document.write(unescape(&quot;%3Cscript src=&#39;;user=iwhite&#39; type=&#39;text/javascript&#39;%3E%3C/script%3E&quot;));

Now this works.  

However, I can see only one tweet over there.  Which is not pretty recent also.  The installation section on Tweetboard ( says the following:

I've installed Tweetboard but my Twitter stream is not being pulled

Once you have installed Tweetboard you MUST sign-in (button at the top right) using the Twitter account associated to that specific Tweetboard, providing the Auth Token needed to pull your Twitter stream. Note that the initial extraction may take a little while since all new accounts go into a queue for pulling. Messages posted *via your own Tweetboard* will appear immediately though. If your stream has not being pulled within 24 hrs, please open a support ticket for assistance.

However, I'm trying to figure out how can I login to Tweetboard and fail.  I didn't find any login or sign-in button on the site, and I had to ask 140WARE ( for insights. ;)

I'm looking forward to see the value of the product.  It looked interesting for me from the first sight, and hopefully, I can make it run shortly for my blog.
