Why Integrate Twitter & WordPress?
There are a few key types of integration you might want to consider, both for showing tweets on your site, or getting your blog content out into your Twitter stream:
- Show Your Latest Tweets — Pull in your latest social media posts and show them in your sidebar, footer, or in another type of widget
- Show a Profile Widget — Just show your Twitter avatar, handle, and a link to your profile on your site
- Push Your Latest Posts to Twitter — Go the opposite way, and have Twitter automatically publish a link to any new post you publish on WordPress (pulling information from your RSS feed)
Whichever of these you choose to try, there are a few plugins that can help make the process simple:
