Torque, there are already some web parts available to show Twitter feeds like Free Sharepoint Twitter Web Part and SharePoint Twitter, why you insist to use JQuery? –  Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 28 '12 at 13:04
    
Thank You Arsalan, But as per requirement I have to display tweets using Jquery only. –  Torque Nov 28 '12 at 13:06

what you want is a "JQuery Twitter ticker" sounds funky!

Here is a good one I have used in the past: Zazar twitter ticker

You will just need to shove it in a webpart, which is easy to do.

Thanks Hugh, My requirement is little bit different. I want to show twitter feed continuously scrolling not one by one. –  Torque Nov 29 '12 at 4:14

All you have to do is change the ticker time so the delay is lower and it will continuously scroll. Or Google "Horizontal Twitter Ticker" because there are dozens. –  Hugh Wood Nov 29 '12 at 8:38

Also check this jQuery plugin, Just put plugin file to some SharePoint library, like Style Library. Link it on page. Add another file to library and put there code to display your twitter feed, you can see few examples of this code on site I suggested. Then add content editor web part to page, where you want to see twitter and link it on properties to file with your jQuery JavaScript code.

One code sample for you:

jQuery(function($){
    $(".tweet").tweet({
      join_text: "auto",
      username: "seaofclouds",
      avatar_size: 48,
      count: 3,
      auto_join_text_default: " we said, ",
      auto_join_text_ed: " we ",
      auto_join_text_ing: " we were ",
      auto_join_text_reply: " we replied ",
      auto_join_text_url: " we were checking out ",
      loading_text: "loading tweets..."
    });
  });
