I suppose you’ve already heard about Twitter. The best way to stay tuned and connected with your friends online. Twitter is also famous for it’s plugins that enable users to send and receive Tweets from almost any application or website. A guy even managed to tweak his washing machine, see this post to see what I mean: Washing Machine Tweaked – Posts on Twitter When The Load’s Done.

And now it can be integrated into Google Gmail. Which enables you to send Updates and see Tweets from other users without even going to Twitter website. You just need to apply these 3 easy steps and start Tweeting from your Gmail inbox right away.

Login to your Gmail account and follow these steps to add Twitter to your Gmail inbox:

1. After logging in, Click the green Labs Icon located at the top right corner of your window. (you can click on image below to enlarge it)

step-1

If you never used any of Gmail addons from Google Labs then you will not see this green Lab Icon. To fix that, just go to Settings and then click on the Labs tab. After that you should see list of plugins that can be added to your Gmail inbox. I’ve written about this in the post about 5 Cool Gmail Apps here.

2. When you go to Labs, you need to find plugin named “Add any Gadget by URL” (it is usually at the bottom of the list). After you find it, click to enable it.

3. Now go to Gadgets Tab and enter “http://www.twittergadget.com/gadget_gmail.xml” (without quotation marks). See the image below.
step-3

Click the Add button and there you go! Now you have Twitter integrated into your Gmail inbox. It should appear in your sidebar and should look something like this:
