How to Display Recent Tweets in WordPress with Twitter Widgets

Do you want to display your recent tweets on your WordPress site? Integrating your social media on to your WordPress site can help with community engagement and cross-promote your site and social content. In this video, we'll show you a few different ways to display recent tweets on your WordPress site.

Smash Balloon is a powerful plugin to help you bring your social media content to your WordPress site, and we will be using the premium version of the plugin that can be found on the page below:

With the plugin installed, activated, and the license key added you can connect it to your Twitter profile by clicking the log in button and the plugin should bring in your access token and access token secret. This will complete your connection and you can start customizing the display for your site.

For our second method, we are using the WordPress embed system. You will want to visit the page on Twitter you are wanting to embed, copy the URL from that page and go back to your site. We will be adding it to the widget area so you would add a text widget and paste the URL in there and it should automatically embed.

Your third method would be to use Twitter's publish page. You can select a tweet, hashtag, or many other different Twitter-specific options depending on what you are looking to customize. After you add the URL, click the arrow and Twitter will let you choose the embed option and will give you the code to copy. With the code copied, you would want to add a Custom HTML widget and paste the code into that widget to add it to your site.
