There is a new widget on Google play called "BlingBoard".
BlingBoard lets you monitor your emails, Facebook/Twitter feeds and your text messages (also missed calls) all from one little box on your homescreen.
So if you are looking for that kind of widget you should give it a try.
there are good reviews on "TNW" and on "Androidcommunity"
