There are a lot of options to choose from while creating the widget such as the number of updates you wish to display, the widget size, number of rows of followers to display etc.

To install Zhuyo, you just need to copy paste the code into your blog (supports WordPress, Blogger, Typepad and just about anything!).

Zhuyo is currently in private beta. The first 100 twi5.com readers can use the beta invite code “twi5” (without quotes) to sign up.

Update: Zhuyo has launched a “Tweet This” browser bookmarklet which lets you easily share web pages that you are currently viewing. The bookmarklet makes use of twitter oAuth and there’s no registration needed to use it!
