Twitter Timeline Widget

The Twitter Timeline widget shows your latest tweets within a sidebar on your theme. It’s an easy way to add more activity to your site and you can customize it with various options.

Twitter Widget display

You can setup a Twitter Timeline Widget by following these steps:

  1. Go to Appearance > Widgets in your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Drag the “Twitter Timeline (Jetpack)” widget in to one of your active sidebars.
  3. Choose a widget type (Profile is recommended).
  4. Paste your Twitter username in to the corresponding field within your WordPress Dashboard.

Troubleshooting this widget

If you want a scrollbar in your widget and you have set a fixed height, you can not set a tweet limit in the “# of Tweets Shown:” box. When a number of tweets is specified, the scrollbar is disabled. This means that the widget will also ignore the “Height” setting; the widget’s height will be based on the size of the tweets.

Please note: Twitter made changes to their Timeline widget; they removed the option to hide images from your feed as of March 3, 2016. See the post on Twitter for more details.
