I'm not even sure if that's possible as I'm really not a coder but I was wondering if it was possible to develop a little gagdet that would display the equivalent of my twitter home timeline (where I see everything people I follow posted) and limit it to the 5 most recent things in there or something like that. I was really thinking of something like a rss feed-like feature (and I saw there is a RSS addon in the scription subforum but I really have no idea if I could get my twitter in that or how.. google didn't really help me on there).
1) as you saw, download the widget addon (if you didn't do it) from www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&catid=6&id=6164
and install it.
2) Right click in a window -> Options -> Skins -> Advanced >>> -> Open Shadow4 on the left side -> select RSS -> click on the right arrow.
3) Now, its time to change the RSS. Open your Twitter page and seach for the RSS icon (an orange one). In Firefox is on the right side of the address/location bar. The RSS will be something like twitter.com/favorites/
[NUMBER].rss for Favorites and twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/
[NUMBER].rss for your timeline.
4) Select "Shadow4 - RSS" in the right side of the dialog and click in "options..."
5) On the top side, look for the item "RSS Location" and paste the previous url. Click OK and wait to refresh. Done!
This works for Favorites and for your own tweets. Sorry if i can't help you with a RSS for the following. I don't have a Twitter account.
