is it only in 4/4 timing or can it be in other time signatures like 12/8?

Why wouldn't you be able to? Honestly, if it's 12-bars and follows the progression, it's 12-bar blues.

12/8 is mainly for slower blues. 4/4 is more R&B

4/4 is most genres.

I might go write some 12 bar blues in interesting time signatures actually...

Slow blues are generally written in 12/8 time. Faster blues are usually written in 4/4 time with the swing rhythm noted at the beginning. There's no reason a blues couldn't be written in 7/4 or something weird, though it would be unusual.

Time signatures only exist on paper. Any given piece of music can be written in any time signiture, some would just be horribly, horribly syncopated looking
