Twitter

Official Twitter plugin for WordPress. Embed Twitter content and grow your audience on Twitter. Requires PHP 5.4 or greater.

How can I change an embedded Tweet's background and link colors to match my site's theme?

The Twitter plugin for WordPress includes a settings page with options to customize the background color, link color, and border color used in Twitter embedded Tweets and embedded timelines.

How do I include an embedded timeline in my page?

Log in to Twitter.com and visit the Twitter widgets settings page to create and manage embedded timeline widgets for your account. Widget settings are saved to a widget identifier for the logged in account; you may want to create a widget from your site's account, not your personal account, for continuity and general organization.

Copy-and-paste the HTML generated by the Twitter widgets configuration tool into a new WordPress text widget.

My custom link color and border color do not appear in embedded Tweets or timelines

Your site may have a Content Security Policy blocking Twitter's JavaScript from inserting your custom styling into the widget.

You may have configured an embedded timeline widget with a non-default link color. Your widget configuration overrides your page / theme configuration.

Does the Twitter plugin add additional tracking of my site's visitors?

The Twitter plugin for WordPress makes it easier to explicitly include Twitter features and functionality on your WordPress site. No additional tracking is added as a result of our plugin code's execution on your server(s).

Twitter widgets and buttons load Twitter's widgets.js library through the WordPress JavaScript queue. Read more about how Twitter for Websites widgets respect user privacy.

Twitter advertising trackers are only included on the page when invoked by the site using the twitter_tracking shortcode. Read more about Twitter's policies for conversion tracking and tailored audiences products.
