If you’re seeing a hidden iframe with an ID twttrHubFrame that probably means you’re using a socialize widget such as the twitter platform’s widget.

Twitter on Facebook Pages

Thought I’d post this here, too: I wanted to share a facebook application I just learned about. It adds a tab to a facebook “page” that shows twitter updates: http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=53267368995#/apps/application.php?v=wall&id=53267368995 It was difficult to find, I didn’t realize it was possible. For a long time I thought facebook only allowed you to push your FB updates to twitter, and not vice versa. Hope you find it useful. They have a free and pro version. I’m using free.
