Add Twitter Feed to Weebly Site

You don’t need to be fluent in HTML to embed your Twitter feed into your Weebly site, but you do need to do a little digging around. I discovered that the Weebly help page has a link to Twitter that does not give the steps for adding a Twitter widget. But a little searching brought me to this page, which shows how simple the process actually is.

For you visual learners, here are the steps:

1. First log in to Twitter and click on the Settings gear icon:Twitter gear

2. Click on Widgets and choose Create new:

Twitter widgets

Twitter create new3. Choose the source of the Twitter timeline you’d like to embed. If you want to embed your own Twitter feed, click on User timeline:

4. Complete the customization details of your feed and click Create widget.

  • For User Timeline, enter the username of the user whose Tweets you want to display.
  • For Favorites, enter the username of the user whose favorites you want to display.
  • For List, select a public list that you own and/or subscribe to in the drop-down menu.
  • For Search, enter your search query.
