In addition to displaying content described by link, an embedded tweet can show photos and videos uploaded to Twitter. Here’s how you can quickly grab a Tweet and embed it on your website or blog.
Show an embedded tweet on your website or blog

- Click the down-arrow icon located within the Tweet.
- Select the Embed Tweet option.

What does embed tweet mean?
An embedded Tweet is a Tweet in itself that contains media contents such as photos, videos, or texts. It can be added to a post or a page by pasting the Tweet URL. This makes it easier for a visitor to follow, retweet, or click on a link in an embedded tweet without ever having to leave your site.
How to embed a tweet in WordPress site?
Please note that tweets can be embedded only via twitter.com. The mobile application currently does not support this capability.
Launch Twitter.com. Enter your information (email ID and password) to login.
Go to the desired tweet you would like to embed on your blog or website.
Just adjacent to the tweet, you will find a drop-down arrow button. Click the button located within the Tweet.
From the list of options displayed under the menu, select ‘Embed Tweet’.
Once you select the option, you will be directed to the ‘publish.twitter.com’ page. Here, you can customize the look of the embedded Tweet by clicking ‘set customization options’.
If the Tweet is a reply to another Tweet, you can check ‘Hide Conversation’ to hide the original Tweet. This option is visible under the ‘Would you like to limit context in this Tweet’ setting.
Hit the ‘Update’ button to confirm the changes.
Now, once you are satisfied by the look of your embedded Tweet, copy the code provided by clicking the ‘Copy Code’ button.
Paste the code into your blog or website. Please note that you’ll need to paste the code directly into the HTML portion of your site, and you’ll be good to go!
That’s all there to it! Let us know if the method works for you!
