In addition to posting a whole Twitter timeline in a WordPress blog, it’s also possible to post individual Tweets, as shown in the previous post about the Ukrainian violence. WordPress has an abundance of information about this process at http://en.support.wordpress.com/twitter/twitter-embeds/. There are also simple ways to change the display of a Tweet. Before you post a Tweet, though, you’ll need to take a couple of steps first. Begin by clicking on the Tweet, then click on the “Details” option that appears once the Tweet is expanded. This will open the Tweet into a detailed mode with other information. Now, go to the URL in your browser and highlight the long string of numbers at its end. Use Ctrl+C or the cursor to copy those numbers. When you’re ready, you’ll need to paste those numbers into your blog.
You’ll start with a left bracket [
…followed by the word tweet and the number. End the line with a right bracket.]
You can also use other options, such as hide_thread=’true’ and align=’left’ (or center or right) to change the layout of your Tweets.
