How to embed your Twitter Timeline on your blog or website.

Last night, the vBrowngBagLATAM crew had a session about how to start your own blog, tips and tricks. During the discussion, my new blog was shown and there were questions about how to embed your own Twitter timeline into the blog or website. Here are the steps I used, they are very simple.

Visit and enter your Twitter handle or that of the user you want to embed.

Select the "Embedded Timeline" option on the left.

This will present the code that you need to copy in your blog.

You can optionally customize how the embedded code will look; things like sidebar, light or dark mode, height and width, link color and language.

If you are using Blogger like in my case, you'll go to Layout section and select where you intent to add the timeline, generally the sidebar.
Select Add a Gadget 

Then pick the option of HTML/JavaScript and paste the code copied from Twitter

Twitter offers the option to embed not only timelines but a variety of content as shown below. 

Go ahead and try it now, it will add a nice touch to your blog!
