Do you think its a smart idea?

Do you think it may have any SEO effect? since there are outward links constantly changing, is there a chance you may get hit with a penalty?
(I personally cant afford any more penalties ;) )

I just added it an hour ago and actually like it. I selected ONE relating keyword and filtered the tweets accordingly. There are modules to do this but also under the Goodies on their websites footer you can easily add the script to your blog or site.

So what do you think?

I think its a good idea if it benefits the end user. Good for seo? I'm not sure. I guess it depends on how closely related the tweets are and if they can be spidered. I can't see it causing any harm.

the tweets are related to my site. But do you think I should only have it on my front page? or on ALL pages?

I dont want to lose my visitors when they visit my inner pages.

I wouldn't put it on all pages. In this case less is more. You want it to be seen as cool. If its all over your site people will grow tired of it.

You may be better not having it on your homepage. Make sure your content gets the major focus.

now you made me thinking! I think it looks cool only on the side menu on my front page. But youre right it is distraction! I barely look at the front page content when I see the block scrolling with the NEWEST links!
