How to embed a Twitter Feed on your website

Today we're going to look at getting a Twitter feed onto your website. It's super easy. Today's blog was requested by Melanie of Stomp.ie, so we're going to use her site as an example.

This whole process will take you less than five minutes to sort out, and it's super-easy.

If you have a WordPress website, keep reading for this example.

Of course, all WordPress websites are different, but you probably want to get this feed appear in the Widget section. In this example, on Stomp.ie, I'm logging onto the WordPress control panel, then going to Appearance, and then Widgets.

Go to the Widget area where you want (in this case, we want the Twitter feed on the bottom of each page), and drag a 'Text' Widget over.

I'm going to leave the 'Title' field blank, as the header comes with the feed anyway. Then, paste the code in to the main area of that widget as below:

Hit 'Save' and hey presto! It's done! Go look at your site and be proud of yourself. :)

Here's a screen-capture of the finished job on Stomp.ie:
