    Not tested but it should work.

    Go and login with your twitter account here:
    Code:
    www.twitterremote.com
    Find about 20 popular sites running the twit remote javascript. Look at the source code and grab the username_owner and users_id values of each and put them into an array.

    Create a simple page like this:
    PHP:
    <?
    $refreshrate 10//number of seconds to wait to select new remote
    $users = array('username_owner1:users_id1','username_owner2:users_id2');  //add as many blog users running twitterremote as you want
    $randomuser rand(0count($users) - 1);
    $user explode(":"$users[$randomuser]);

    echo 
    '<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="'.$refreshrate.'; URL='.$PHP_SELF.'">'

    echo 
    '<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="http://twittercounter.com/remote/?username_owner='.$user[0].'&users_id='.$user[1].'&width=200&nr_show=6&hr_color=cccccc&a_color=709cb2&bg_color=ffffff"></script>';
    ?>
    Then just upload that page and leave it run in your browser. It will act like you're visiting that blog's page and put your twitter account at the top of the widget each time.

    Since that widget is usually placed in the sidebar, your twitter profile should be visible site wide all the time.

    To make this better. Get a URL scrapper from google, and use a footprint from it :)

    I did this in a similar way, but it didnt really work all too well. That is i cant really say it exploded my twitter profiles exposure or anything. Shoemoney used to have this widget, so did hummingbirds forums, so it was easy to get on there. But didnt really get anything from it.
