Add disclaimer, or just don't show on content pages?

I'm not a fan of this widget for content pages (it's neither notable nor encyclopedic). Is everyone happy with the way this is being used? Wikipedia seems to use it only on non-content pages.

Let's say it makes sense to use. As it's coded, I have no idea what the feeds are or how they differ from the rest of the article.

I wanted to add a disclaimer/help/box/something to

  1. separate the twitter feed visually from the encyclopedic content, and
  2. let the user know what it is.

This could be done easily with a {{twitter}} template encasing this widget (much like the {{map}} template). Worth my time to do? -- B.S. Lawrence 17:12, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I like having it on key pages, but would like the text to be displayed in a different manner - possibly smaller text? I like using it for media pages, and would like to have a way to list "articles with twitter feeds" or some such. I added these yesterday to the two pages because it was information I thought should be stored somewhere - not necessarily here, though. --629579396 22:12, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
