  2. Click on the gear icon on the top right of your screen, and select Settings
  3. On the left-hand side menu, select the bottom item: Widgets
  4. Click on Create new
  5. On the first tab (User Timeline) enter your twitter Username and click on Create Widget
  6. When your browser brings up the next page, view the address bar. It will look like this:

Your Widget ID is the 18-digit number that you see right after widgets/. You will use it to add a Twitter Portlet on your WebCMS site.
