    There currently isn’t a way to hide retweets in a Twitter Timeline embed. We’ll note this as a feature request though!

    Hi Evan

    Thanks for getting back to me. Is it possible I could modify the plugin to add the retweet filter?

    Or I note that the page in GitHub talks about a site wide customisation using a filter. Could this be a possible method to achieve what I need?

    Sorry to ask, but I need to find a way!

    Best regards

    Robert

    Unfortunately there isn’t a way to do this with filters since this plugin just makes it easier to implement Twitter’s embeds. You can see the documentation for the embeds here: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-for-websites/overview

    Okay thanks Evan.

    Could you please take my request to whoever makes decisions on new features please. Twitter is a huge company and I’m a bit surprised that the website embedding support is so limited.

    Retweets are a real pain when using lists.

    I know it must be technically possible because there are a few commercial plug-ins offering the facility to filter out retweets – but these plugins have other issues, so I prefer to use the official Twitter plugin.

    Regards

    Robert
