Many districts are using social media to engage with their community. Embedding a Twitter feed can attract visitors to the social media page, and provide an easy way for updates to automatically show on the site.
Note: Sometimes a Twitter feed code can benefit from css code adjustments for optimal display. If the feed doesn’t display in an ideal manner, contact firstname.lastname@example.org about embed code adjustments to help match the district website.
- Login to the Twitter account whose feed is to be embedded.
- Click the profile button in the top right of the page and choose Settings.
- In the left column of the settings page, click the Widgets
- Click the Create New button in the widgets area.
- Make changes to the feed using their configuration fields. A Preview of the feed will display to the right of the configuration options.
- If the widget looks like you want it to, click the Create Widget button and it will give you the code to embed that widget on your website. If you don’t like the way it looks you can use Twitter's custom options, which are set directly in the code.
