Disable Twitter Embeds


WordPress 3.4 introduced native Twitter embeds. You may not want to use these for privacy–or other–reasons, while still allowing for other embeds. This plugin disables only Twitter embeds.


  1. Upload the disable-twitter-embeds folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory

  2. Activate the “Disable Twitter Embeds” plugin in your WordPress administration interface

  3. That’s it.


Why does my post still show a Twitter embed after activating this plugin?

If you saved a post containing a Twitter embed before activating this plugin, you simply need to re-save it to make it go away.

How do I disable Markdown processing?

In most cases this should be unnecessary, since Markdown ignores existing HTML. But if Markdown for some reason disturbs your HTML when making an edit to a non-Markdown post, either check the “Disable Markdown formatting” checkbox, or put a <!--no-markdown--> HTML comment in your post somewhere (useful when using a mobile or 3rd party blogging app).
