How to embed Twitter timelines on your website


Today we’re bringing Twitter and the web closer together by launching new real-time tools for website developers. With our new embedded timelines you can place any public timeline on your website, connecting your readers with the Tweets that you and others create on Twitter.

With one line of HTML you can deliver any account’s Tweets, favorites, a list, search query or #hashtag directly to your website. Embedded timelines are interactive, enabling visitors to reply, retweet and favorite Tweets, follow your accounts, and Tweet directly to you all without leaving the page. The auto-expand photos option brings the photo front and center in the timeline, and you can expand Tweets just like you would on to see cards, and retweet and favorites counts. These new tools are built specifically for the web: they load fast, scale with your traffic as your audience grows, update in real-time, and work great in modern, legacy, and mobile browsers.

Create your own embedded timeline right now using the new timeline settings page on, or read more about how embedded timelines work on your website in the developer documentation and ask questions in our forum for embedded timelines.
