Want to learn how to embed tweets in WordPress? We’re going to show you just how simple it is.

When it comes to social media marketing, a great way to do it is simply to show your tweets on your website. This way, you can lead interested people from your site to your Twitter profile.

Plus, your embedded tweets can make your site more engaging for your visitors. For example, you can just add tweets of people enjoying your products to help boost your sales.

It’s easy and effective, and just about anyone can do it. And in this post, we’ll show you how to embed tweets in WordPress easily.

Ways to Embed Tweets in WordPress

First of all, you need to know there are 2 ways to embed a tweet in WordPress.

  • Manually: You can copy the URL of the tweet and paste it on your website. This way, WordPress will automatically embed it. Sadly, it can be time-consuming if you want to embed multiple tweets.
  • Easy Way: With the Custom Twitter Feeds Pro plugin, you can easily add as many tweets as you want on your site. You can even add Twitter feeds that you can set to automatically update as you make new tweets.

How to Embed Your Tweets in Your WordPress (Manually)

To manually embed a tweet, first open the tweet on your browser. Here, just copy the URL from the address bar.

Now, go to Pages » Add New from your dashboard to open up the WordPress editor.

You can also use a WordPress post if you like. To do that, go to Posts » Add New.

Then, you can go to your WordPress site and then paste that URL from earlier and WordPress will automatically embed it.

While it can be a simple way to embed a tweet on your WordPress blog posts, there’s a lot of limitations here.

  • For every tweet, you’ll have to go and copy the URL and come back to paste it. And if you make a new tweet, you’ll have to repeat it again. So, you’re wasting lots of your valuable time just to embed multiple tweets.
  • You can’t really customize or change how the tweets look. As a result, the tweets can clash with your own branding style.
  • If you want to add multiple tweets from a specific hashtag, you’ll have to manually add them all yourself.
