Do you want to embed a Twitter profile on your website?

Displaying your Twitter profile is the easiest way for you to get new likes, replies, and followers from your website.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to embed Twitter profiles with ease – no coding needed.

Here’s what this guide will cover. Just click on a section if you want to skip ahead.

Let’s get started!

Why Embed a Twitter Profile on Your Site?

By embedding recent tweets from your own profile, you can easily turn your website visitors into new followers.

Since people on your site are already interested in your content, they’re more likely to follow your Twitter account.

Plus, you can also embed content from other Twitter users on your website. That way, you can have relevant tweets, photos, and videos on your site to keep your visitors interested.

You can also highlight the latest news and announcements from your Twitter profile. As a result, all the people on your site can get updates about your business.

On top of that, you can show user-generated content like reviews, testimonials, product demonstrations, and more from other people’s Twitter profiles. This can act as social proof and convince visitors to buy from you.

And when people spend more time on your website, you get much better SEO. So, your website can reach even more potential customers with ease.

Now that you know why you should embed Twitter content, let’s go and see how you can embed Twitter profiles the easy way.

Easiest Way to Embed a Twitter Profile in WordPress

When embedding your Twitter profile, there are 2 different options that you can try:

  • Manual Way: Use the official Twitter embed code generator, tweak the code, and then add it directly to your website.
  • Easy Way: With the help of a Twitter plugin, you can embed Twitter profiles on your site automatically.

Using the manual way, you’ll have to open on your browser and then generate an HTML code to embed a Twitter profile.

Once you insert that HTML code into your website, you’ll finally be able to show the tweets from that profile.

As you can see, this method can get confusing since you’ll have to manage complicated embed codes.

On top of that, you’ll have no way of tracking the Twitter profiles you’ve embedded on your site.

Plus, your Twitter profile won’t match the design of your website’s theme, so it might clash with your branding.

And if you want to customize how the tweets look, you need to either manually edit the code or hire a developer to do that for you.

The good news is that there’s a simple way to embed Twitter profiles on your website — Twitter Feed Pro.

Using this plugin, you can display Twitter content on your WordPress site in just minutes — no need for HTML, CSS, Javascript, or even iFrames.

Plus, all the Twitter content you embed will automatically copy the design of your website. So, your Twitter profile will match your brand’s look perfectly.

Twitter Feed Pro also comes with in-depth customization options that let you set how the Twitter feeds appear on your website. You even get a live preview to check how the Twitter profile will look on your website.

Another great feature of Twitter Feed Pro is that it automatically saves a cached copy of your Twitter feeds. So, your site can show the saved copy instead of loading your feed from scratch each time.

As a result, your website will load much faster, and you can get better SEO as well.
