This simple plugin will enable you to embed tweets into your posts, pages and text widgets and apply YOUR CUSTOM STYLES. It comes down to adding a simple snippet into your post, page or text widget content. Here's an example:


This snippet will display five last tweets made by @WordPress with an intuitive HTML markup to which you can easily apply your custom CSS:

.inline_tweet { background-color: whitesmoke; border: 2px solid black; }

Fetching tweets will be done in the background and will not slow down the displaying of your website or blog. You will see an unobtrusive transition placeholder before the tweets are loaded.

Caching will improve performance when fetching tweets and ensure that the plugin operates within Twitter API limits. To enable caching, please install W3 Total Cache and enable 'Object Cache' in plugin settings.


SinceTwitter introduced it's API version 1.1 you need to create a Twitter application to be able to use it and thus to use this plugin. It's not hard, you will spend a couple of minutes to create an app and obtain tokens and keys you will use for configuring Inline Tweets. You will have to do that only once, so no problem.

Credits should be given when credits are due. Inline tweets use a great Twitter API wrapper library created by Abraham Williams to communicate with Twitter. You can find it here
