Embed a Tweet

How to Get Your Tweets into Your Website

Twitter has allowed for embedding for Tweets for quite some time now.  This is the first time I have taken advantage of the feature.  It was quite simple:

  1. Find the Tweet you want to embedd
  2. Click the small triangle next to More
  3. Choose embed
  4. Copy code
  5. Go to your website
  6. Paste the code

Why Embed a Tweet?

There are many reasons you might want to embed a Tweet:

  • This is a photo of me speaking at a business networking meeting.  I could use this to market my speaking or to promote the meeting.
  • I have seen people embed a Twitter post on an error page for their website. This is very effective if the site is down and it is a Tweet about the problem.  The comments and replies get added as well so the issue can be followed by visitors instead of everyone contacting the support team.
  • Show the popularity of a service or product
  • Embed a Vine video
  • Share a Twitter conversation relevant to your business
  • Share a Twitter testimonial or review
