Why Embed Tweets On WordPress?
Tweets are a great way to build community and connect with your audience. You can also build your industry’s reputation for being a thought leader through tweets.

Tweets can be added to your content to increase organic social shares, grow your audience and generate more leads.
This will increase your visibility and build trust within the community. Visitors will be able to quickly learn about you and your offerings by using this method. It’s easy to embed tweets in WordPress and make your company known, without having to develop a social media strategy.
How To Embed Tweets On WordPress Site?
WordPress comes with the ability to use Twitter as an embedded function. When you insert tweets in pages or posts, it will adjust automatically. Copy the Twitter embed link and paste it into WordPress.
We will discuss how to embed Twitter in WordPress using the Gutenberg editor and Classic editors, as well as with the help of a plugin. Let’s start, without further delay.
Embed Tweets In Block Editor
The first step is to find the embed link. Each tweet will contain a link you can use. Navigate to Twitter and copy the URL for the tweet you wish to embed.
On the top-right-hand side, a downward arrow should be visible. Choose Embed Tweet from the drop-down menu.
The embed URL will be highlighted in a pop-up window. You can also view the appearance of the tweet once it has been embedded. Copy the embed link.
Gutenberg allows you to simply paste the link into the appropriate block. You can do this directly from the page or post editor. You can create a page, post, or edit one already created.
Use the search bar to search Twitter and choose the Twitter block.
Copy the Twitter URL you copied in step 1 into the block. Click on the Embed button.
