Since Twitter has decommissioned the old Twitter API, the Twitter sidebar in Octopress based blogs has stopped working.
A few blogs have started to add the new Twitter widget to the sidebar but its quite garish.
My solution just copies the Google Plus sidebard and re-formats for Twitter - just refer the bottom right in the sidebar of this page to see it in action
New sidebar file
Create a new file source/_includes/custom/asides/twitter2.html
Update the sass/partials/sidebar/_googleplus.scss and add in
In _config.yml add the new sidebar file to the default_asides
default_asides: [custom/asides/twitter2.html, ...
Remove the original asides/twitter.html from the default_asides: line

The solution is simple but one you shouldn’t have to worry about:
Right click the Network Manager icon in your panel
Select Edit Connections, and switch to the Wireless tab
Select the connection you want to work with and click the Edit button
Check the boxes for Connect Automatically and Available to all users.
