As a popular WordPress website-building plugin, Elementor can help you design a beautiful website with ease. It features a simple drag-and-drop editor that you can use to easily build your pages — no coding needed.

What’s more, you can get Elementor addons to add even more features to your WordPress website.

But if you don’t want to buy lots of premium addons, there’s an easy way to make your Elementor site even more engaging.

All you have to do is embed a Twitter feed on your Elementor site. That way, you can show relevant tweets to your visitors and keep them longer on your website.

On top of that, here are a few more ways an Elementor Twitter feed can help your business grow:

  • By embedding your Twitter timeline on Elementor, you can use your site traffic to get tons of Twitter followers, retweets, likes, and more.
  • With a Twitter feed, you can show reviews and testimonials from real people on Twitter. This social proof can help you convert visitors into paying customers.
  • You can post your own tweets using a feed, so any latest news and announcements are clearly visible.
  • To promote your branded hashtags, you can show a hashtag Twitter feed on your Elementor website.

All in all, Twitter feeds can be an amazing addition to your Elementor site and a great way to help promote your brand.

Now, let’s take a look at the simplest way to embed a WordPress Twitter feed on your site.

Easiest Way to Embed Elementor Twitter Feeds

To help embed content from Twitter on your website, there are 2 options that you can choose from:

  • Manual Way: Generate an embed code for your Twitter feed and then add the code to your website manually.
  • Automatic Way: Use a plugin to automatically embed Twitter feeds on your website instead.

If you pick the manual way, it means you’ll have to deal with a lot of code snippets when preparing your Twitter feeds. As a result, it can take a lot more time and effort to display your Twitter social feed on your site.

Plus, if something goes wrong when adding the HTML embed code to your site, you won’t have a support team to help you.

For a simpler way to embed tweets on your Elementor site, the easiest way is to use a WordPress plugin like Twitter Feed Pro.
