The most followed and best source for up-to-date happenings around the globe. From celebrities and influencers to brands and everyday people, approximately 6,000 tweets are tweeted every 60 seconds. Woah.
Twitter is where you connect, network, and keep people in the know about your business or blog. For many companies, Twitter is their go-to social media platform for news, announcements, and public communication. Heck, even the President of the United States is all over Twitter!
You spend a lot of time tweeting, engaging, and building a successful Twitter following, wouldn’t it be nice if everyone you needed to communicate with were on Twitter? Unfortunately, that’s not the case, many people have yet to discover your Twitter page and the exciting content you share. So how can you maximize your efforts without creating more work?
Get more miles out of your Twitter efforts with a Twitter widget!
A Twitter widget will allow you to embed your live Twitter feed right on your website. People can browse your web pages and get a sneak peek into your Twitter chatter without having to leave your site. Embedding a Twitter feed on your website not only helps improve session time but could also turn visitors into followers.
There are quite a few ways to embed a Twitter widget on your website, but some are certainly better than others. This article is going to walk you through 2 of the most popular and affordable options!
You’re probably wondering, does Twitter have a widget I can just use? The answer is yes. Twitter offers a few different embeddable widgets depending upon what you want to display.
How do I get an embed code from Twitter?
Here is how you can embed Twitter into your website step by step.
There are a few articles out there that tell you that you can manage your widgets through your Twitter account. Twitter no longer allows this, you must use their publish.twitter.com site to select your widget embed code.
Once on the site, you can select your customized desired widget based on the examples provided in the drop downs. For example, say we want to add the hashtag, #travel, you enter that into the white box, and Twitter’s embed code generator will automatically populate.
Once you’re provided with the embed code you can copy and paste this into your web pages.
As you can see, adding a Twitter widget is easy directly from Twitter, but what if you want to add your account, multiple hashtags, and any user-generated tweets from fans with one widget instead of multiple? This is where a social media aggregator comes in.
A social media aggregator is a tool that allows you to curate content from your favorite social media platforms into one feed you can embed on your website. Content from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and multiple hashtags, can all appear on one feed and be embedded with one code.
There are many social media aggregators out there, but Juicer is, by far, the easiest and most affordable while still offering all of the best features.
While Juicer integrates with many different social media platforms, it can essentially serve as a Twitter widget. Let’s take a look at how easy it is to embed a Twitter feed into your website using Juicer.
Select a name for your Juicer feed and then “Add Social Media Source” and choose the Twitter icon. Twitter will then direct you to confirm your username and access permissions to your account. Once you confirm, you can just sit back and watch as Juicer automatically populates all of your Twitter activity into the Juicer dashboard!
On the panel located on the left-hand side of the Juicer dashboard, go to “Embed In Your Site” and click on your customized URL. You can simply copy and paste your Twitter aggregator code into your web pages.
