Trying to put a Twitter Feed on the login page

Hello everybody,

 

I'm trying to put a Twitter News feed on the login page and am tweaking the login.jsp file downloaded.

 

After inserting the twitter widget code into it, it does display properly but for the minor exception of one thing: the Bb copyright stuff at the bottom/footer.

 

Ideally, I'd want to put the feed between the reserved space with the announcements and the copyright/version info but as you can see in the image, the copyright info just floats above everything.

 

There technically isn't anything more I can do with the twitter code as it's a copy/paste of a script from twitter directly.

 

Workarounds include putting the twitter feed above the announcements, which is okay, but we're rather like to prioritize the standard Learn announcements first in the layout.

We could place the twitter below the copyright info, but it looks quite ugly.

 

I had been looking around at other institutions for twitter feeds on the login pages, but haven't come across any just yet. Hopefully, someone out there has a good way to do this.
