how to embed responsive twitter widgets on your website

Want to make your Twitter embeds responsive? We’ve got you covered.

With so many people browsing the internet on their phones, it’s more important than ever to make your website mobile-friendly.

And by showing responsive Twitter embeds, you can engage visitors on all devices with relevant tweets.

Today, we’ll share the easiest way you can customize your Twitter embeds and make them fully responsive.

But first, let’s look at the ways you can enable a responsive Twitter embed to your website.

Or you can click here and skip to the tutorial.

Is There a Way to Make Twitter Embeds Responsive?

Yes, you can make your Twitter embeds responsive using 2 different methods.

  • Manual way: Use the Twitter embed generate to create a code, customize the code using CSS, and then insert it into your website
  • Easy way: Use a WordPress plugin that can automatically embed the Twitter content for you

As you can see, the manual way can be a lot more time-consuming as well as difficult for people who aren’t used to coding.

Plus, customizing your Twitter embeds will be much harder, so your tweets might not match the design of your website.

And if something goes wrong when manually adding the code to your website, you won’t have a support team to help you out.

On the other hand, you can bypass these problems with the help of Twitter Feed Pro.

How to Embed Responsive Twitter Widgets on Your Site (Easy Way)

If you follow the step-by-step instructions below, you can have a feed of mobile-friendly Twitter embeds on your website.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Install the Twitter Feed Pro Plugin

You can get started by grabbing your copy of Twitter Feed Pro here. Once you have the plugin file, install and activate it on your computer.

If you want a quick refresher on how to do that, we’ve got a beginner-friendly tutorial on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Once you’ve installed and activated Twitter Feed Pro, it’s time to go to step 2 and create your widget.

Step 2: Create a New Twitter Widget

Since the plugin has a 3-step guided flow, you’ll have an easy time creating a new widget to display responsive Twitter embeds.

First, open the Twitter Feed » All Feeds menu from your admin dashboard and click on the Add New button.

Next, you can choose the type of Twitter widget you’d like to embed. There are 6 different options to choose from here:

  • User Timeline: Select a Twitter account and embed the tweets there
  • Hashtag: Display Twitter embeds with your chosen hashtags
  • Home Timeline: Show all the tweets and retweets from your own Twitter timeline
  • Search: Choose a search term and embed the matching tweets
  • Mentions: Embed the tweets that mention your brand’s Twitter handle
  • Lists: Select a Twitter list and embed all the tweets from there

Once you select the widget type you want, click on the Next button.

For our example, we’ll go ahead and select a hashtag widget type.

Now that you’ve created your Twitter widget, it’s time for step 3, where you connect it to your Twitter account.

Step 3: Connect Your Twitter Account

Once you connect your Twitter account, your widget can start displaying responsive Twitter embeds on your site.

Ready to get started?

First, click on the Connect button on the popup.

Doing that will redirect you from your website to on your browser. Here, you can give the plugin read-only access to your account.

Since Smash Balloon is totally safe, Twitter Feed Pro can view Twitter information and won’t have permission to make any changes with this access.

To continue, click on the Authorize app button here.

Clicking on that will send you back to your WordPress website once more.

Here, you can select the source for your Twitter embeds. Depending on your widget type, this can be a Twitter handle, hashtag, search term, and more.

For now, we’ll enter the hashtag “KEEB_PD” on the popup and display all the tweets with that hashtag.

To continue, you can enter your source and then click on Next.

select your twitter feed hashtags

With that, you’ve added a new source for your widget. In the future, you can reuse this source with a single click whenever you make new Twitter widgets.

Now, it’s time for step 4, where you can customize how your Twitter embeds look.

Step 4: Customize Your Twitter Embeds

The great thing about Twitter Feed Pro is that the plugin automatically makes Twitter embeds responsive and copies your website’s design.

So, you can embed it right away and still have a feed of beautiful Twitter embeds.

On top of that, you also have a collection of pre-built templates that you can import for your widget:

  • Default

All you have to do is select a template you want to use and then click on Next.

    Is this up to date – with Twitter having removed access to the API

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for contacting us! For Pro users, we have created a new API that we are slowly rolling out. For our free users, we are still investigating how we can best resolve this issue. For additional updates, please see our FAQ here.
