How to Embed Actual Tweets in WordPress Blog Posts


Hey everyone Leah Mcclellan here from WPBeginner in today’s video I’ll show you how to embed actual tweets
in your WordPress blog posts I’ll bet you’ve written a few post that you thought would be perfect if only you could display the tweet that
inspired it or tweet that illustrates your point or maybe you’ve seen some established blogs with imbedded tweets you wondered, how do they do that that would be so great I bet its really
complicated though well guess what it’s not complicated at
all here’s how to do it, first of all you need to get the URL of the tweet that you want to embed So, lets head on over to twitter okay here we are over in Twitter I want to find the exact tweet that we
were looking at in the WPBeginner post and its right here
from March fith so I want to click on it to show a variety of options down toward
the bottom we have details right here click on that that will give
me the URL that we need here it is this is the independent tweet
by itself with the corresponding URL right up here up above and we want to double click on that select copy already poised to do this your keyboard I’m using the mouse, and then you want to head on over to the post you working on paste the link on separate line in the space where you
want the embed to showin click update and head on over to see what it looks like refresh and there you have it it’s that easy I hope you liked this video and found it helpful.

  1. Hi I don't seem to have the option of "details" so I tried the embed option and Copied url and  that didn't work either, any ideas, what am i doing wrong?

  2. Hi there

    Was wondering if there's a way to alter the tweets themselves when you embed them on the page for example centring them on the page, making them larger etc.

    By default the embedded tweets are aligned to the left.

  3. Hi, I just started WP today, and your tutorials are sooooo helpful thanks!! I love the tutorial on image gallery and this too! Hope you post more tips! Thanks!

  4. Great video but I was wondering if you knew how to embed a tweet in place of a post and not within a post. I've been going nuts trying to figure this out but cannot find a solution.

    In other words I'd like the tweet to show up on the homepage mixed in with my other daily posts. I've seen this sort of thing on Bleacher report but haven't figured out how to replicate it. Thanks!
