Many schools and businesses are using twitter as a social communication platform to send out news and information to users. How to embed twitter feeds on SharePoint intranets and public sites has been a popular question recently so thought I would share with you how it is done. I’ve also created a video guide on YouTube to talk through the process.
First login to your twitter account in a browser on a desktop computer (it doesn’t have to be the same account as the one that you want to display in your widget).
Click on your profile picture in the top right of the screen and select “Settings” from the drop down menu.
Select “Widgets” from the left side menu.
Create a new widget.
Choose your design and configuration. More options are available via the customisation documentation link on the page. Click “Create Widget” to generate the code.
Copy and paste the code into a Script Editor web part. The Script Editor web part can be found under the “Media and Content” category.
