We’ve collected the latest and best Twitter widgets and plugins for WordPress, to add Twitter likes, follows and tweets to your website. Either choose from one of the top plugins to add Twitter functionality to any theme, or choose a WordPress theme that’s already built with Twitter in mind!

It’s a social network that has grown to be one of the largest platforms on the web, and a key way to connect with your customers and community. But why should all the action happen on Twitter? Pull your latest tweets into your website, and encourage your readers to connect with your Twitter account while they’re on your site.

You can read more about how and why to integrate Twitter and WordPress, or read on to see our pick of the best ways to mix Twitter and WordPress!

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:
