    Do you like my idea? please read

    I have implemented Twitter widget on the bottom of my forum to show the most useful topics from my forum randomly.

    See here: www.webmastersgossip.com

    I have created a separate twitter account specially for WG, its @wg_tweets

    I will be tweeting only valuable topics on that account and they will be appearing at the bottom of the forum. You can also treat it as Archives but it will show only valuable topics, not all topics.

    I think it is a good way of using the "Footer" area because usually people don't go to footers but now if they go to footer they will find some good topics which may have buried but they can still be seen through the tweets

    What do you think about my idea and implementation on the forum?

    It is a good idea but as you mentioned people really dont go down there. Think the only time I ever go to the footer on forums is to see the server time of the forums. Its worth a try though!

    Yes I do understand people usually don't go to the footer but there are many people who go to footer often to check the no. of users online at the moment and total no. of posts..etc so when they go there they will have something to read

    Edit: I am already seeing some traffic to old topics in just few hours. Means people find their links from the twitter box

    It's a good idea to use Twitter to promote your forum, and it's unique to put the tweets on the the bottom of your forum.
