Picture 6I’m not sure how long this has been around (probably some time) but it’s worth a mention.

Along with a profile widget and search widget, Twitter has also sneaked in a “favorites” widget that allows you to insert any Twitter users username and retrieve an embeddable widget to embed on your blog, website or anything that accepts HTML.

While hardly a mind blowing new addition, it will be a neat feature to those who enjoy using the favorite option as a way to bookmark tweets or interesting links they’d like to investigate later or share.
