Do you have the problem of thousands of spam comments building up on your Drupal site? Ok, the best solution is to check it regularly and delete the unwanted comments, and just leaving the appropriate ones. However, what if you forget to look at your comments for a few days, if you go on holiday for a week and don’t check your blog or your site has been attacked?

There are many ways on how to show your recent tweets in Drupal sites. I am going to show you two methods to achieve this.

I finally seized the moment and moved my personal static website into my lovely Drupal :) Also, I migrated my oooold blog from OverBlog to WordPress and then to here to Drupal.
The new site is based on Drupal 7 and as you can see it got a new look and feel as well.
