Nowadays official announcements are often made through verified twitter handles. So it becomes necessary to refer to a tweet while writing a blog or a news article. Using a mere screenshot has some drawbacks, since the image won’t be redirecting you to the original tweet. In this scenario the only choice available is to embed a tweet.
How to embed a tweet?
There are two ways to embed a tweet in a webpage. We shall be discussing those one by one. First let’s start with the easier method.
Go to the respective Twitter page and locate the tweet you want to embed.
Either click on the tweet or right click on the tweet time-stamp (Fig. 1) to open it in a new tab.
After the tweet gets highlighted select the URL (Fig. 2) that appears on the address bar and copy it.
Now paste the copied URL onto that section of the page in your Visual Editor where you want to include it.
Your job is done. You have successfully embedded the tweet into the post/page.
But this simpler method has its cons. The embedded tweet contains unnecessary padding to its right, as shown in Fig. 4. To circumvent this, arises the necessity of an alternative method.
After locating the tweet, click on the small down arrow symbol on its top right corner. Select Embed option from the drop-down menu that appears.
Next, a new dialogue box with an embed code opens up (Fig. 6). Copy this code.
Now unlike Method 1, open the Text editor tab of ThemeLines builder and paste this code onto the appropriate section of your write-up.
You have now successfully embedded the tweet (Fig. 8) into your blog.
Save Draft and Preview the changes.
