Today, we’re releasing an official Twitter plugin for WordPress that bundles Twitter features and functionality into an installable package for sites powered by WordPress.
WordPress software powers millions of sites around the web from large global brands such as Katy Perry and Mercedes-Benz to your local grocery store. The official Twitter plugin for WordPress helps sites powered by WordPress embed Twitter content and grow their audience on Twitter.
Twitter Cards add link previews to Tweets.
Twitter Cards help your content stand out on Twitter by providing additional rich context before users click. Our plugin automatically generates Twitter Cards for your webpages to highlight your content shared on Twitter.
With Twitter Analytics, you can also associate your site and author Twitter accounts to track your content’s popularity on Twitter and grow your audience.
Embedded Tweets and video
Customize embedded Tweet colors from the WordPress admin interface.
Since there is unique content every day on Twitter, our new plugin for WordPress makes it easy to include an embedded Tweet on your website that matches your site design. Choose a widget theme, link color and border color from your WordPress administrative dashboard to visually integrate Tweets into your webpages and articles. We’ve also included support for video embeds to highlight Twitter video content.
Add a Tweet button to your posts from the WordPress administrative interface, which makes it easy for Twitter users to share your content with their followers. Our plugin automatically configures your Tweet button to include the URL of the post, site and author Twitter accounts, custom share text and hashtags specific to each post.
Convert visitors into followers by placing a Follow button on every page. Our plugin makes it easy to add a Follow button to your WordPress theme’s widget area or alongside author information.
If you’re also a Twitter advertiser, you can focus on campaigns and conversions without worrying about markup and browser optimizations. You can measure your ROI by tracking actions Twitter users take after viewing or engaging with your ads. Our plugin simplifies conversion tracking and creating a tailored audience with a WordPress macro.
