How to use Oxite plugins

It's cool that Oxite does support plugins, but after enabling, for example, Twitter plugin. Where and how can I useit? Can I use it to display Tweets?

We were just talking about this one yesterday actually.  That one isn't done.  :(  When we ship, it will tweet a new blog post on your behalf.  It will probably also let you put your tweets in the sidebar, but we're still undecided on if that's just another plugin or the same plugin.

But yah, currently, that plugin isn't functional.  We need to finish it.

What would you expect a twitter plugin to do?  :)

I believe it should be a plugin, that can tweet on behalf of you about the new post and a widget/gadget that can display N latest tweets for you account / specified Twitter channel.

Well, that's exactly the intention of the twitter plugin, it's just not done.  :(

BTW, are you going to introduce the term widget (or smth similar), i.e. graphical plugin on the site?

Yup, but still in the planning stages for that.
