Twitter provides you with an easy copy-and-paste cod that allows you show your most recent updates on any Twitter page.
And technically, it can be used to show the most recent update on any Twitter account. The only exception is that it does not work on private accounts.
To customize and create your profile widget, go to: CLICK HERE
To start with, make sure you have the correct username in the Settings:
On the left menu, click “Preferences” and you have a few options:
Let’s talk about these preference options mean…
- Poll for New Results: Tweets will appear in real time if this is checked. Otherwise, static tweets will appear.
- Include Scrollbar: This will include a scrollbar in the widget if checked.
- Behavior: This section allows you to choose between “Timed interval” or “Load all tweets” and decide how many tweets to be shown in the widget. “Timed interval” means that new tweets will be shown up to the maximum at an interval you specify. “Load all tweets” means all the tweets will be loaded to the maximum, without any time interval.
- Show Avatars: Choose this if you want your avatar to appear beside each tweet.
- Show Timestamps: Choose this if you want the timestamp to appear for each tweet.
- Show Hashtags: Choose this if you want any hashtags in your tweets to appear. They will be clickable in the widget.
Now you can customize the colors of the widget. You can match your website, come up with your own color scheme or whatever you wish. Simply click the color box and you can select a color using the easy color-selecting tool. Click “Done” when you’ve chosen the colors you want.
You can customize the background and text in the “shell”, which is the outer-edges of the widget. You can also specify the background and text of your actual tweets. And finally, you can specify the color of hyperlinks in the widget.
The final customization you can make to the widget are its dimensions. You can either a specify a height and width or you can choose “auto width” which will automatically resize the widget, according to the space provided and the height required to display the tweets.
Test Settings & Grab Code
Once you’ve adjusted all your settings, you can go to the bottom of the page and test the settings or grab the code. We’re going to grab the code for our web page.
Your code is now ready to copy and paste into your web page.
Enter it in your web page, or use the Blogger add tool if you use Blogger and voila! Your widget will appear on your page.
