WiscWeb - Embedding a Twitter Feed

Twitter is listed as an accepted embed function within WordPress, and you can easily display messages from a particular Twitter feed within a text area in your WiscWeb site. This document will walk you through the steps involved in this process.

Important

As of September, 2023, changes to Twitter's service and API requirements have made it challenging for the WiscWeb service to accomodate the embedding of Twitter feeds into a page. As such, our recommendation is to link to your group's Twitter feed externally.

Embedding the Feed

  1. Copy the URL of the X feed.
  2. In the text area that you want the feed to display, Paste the feed URL
    • The link will automatically update to say "Tweets by feed name" and the feed should be present.

  3. Update the page.

Once you have updated your page, check to see if the feed is working correctly.

Troubleshooting

  • Please be aware that there may be some issues with browsers other than Google Chrome.
