Today i am releasing the beta version of my Twitter Rollup Webpart.  Do you have a favorite Celebrity or user / group that you enjoy following via twitter.  Now you can surface multiple twitter accounts into a single webpart and utilizing Jquery Accordion you can view the one you are most interested in and collapse the rest.

The webpart currently uses twitters json service to retrieve the values it needs to display the tweets.  If you have any suggestions, problems or praise please let me know either via a comment on this post or email me using the contact page.
