Twitter developer resources
TWITTER BUTTONS / READY. CLICK. ACTION.
No matter where they appear, official Twitter assets should always function the way that they do in our apps.
Make it easy for users to follow a Twitter account from any web page.
Generate a Tweet box pre-populated with your hashtag of choice.
EMBEDDED TWEETS / SPREAD THE WEALTH
Take any Tweet and embed it directly in to the content of your article or website. Embedded tweets can display expanded media like photos, videos, and article summaries, and also include real-time Retweet and like counts. Embedded Tweets are more interactive and make it easy for readers to follow the Tweet author, reply, Retweet and like without leaving your page.
Every Tweet on Twitter or TweetDeck has a set of Tweet actions at the bottom, including reply, Retweet, like, and more. Click “More” and select “Embed Tweet.”
In return, you’ll get an HTML embed code. Copy and paste this directly into the article where you’d like the Tweet to appear. You’ll be able to preview how the Tweet will look before you post. If the Tweet is a reply, you’ll be given a checkbox inside the embed form that lets you include or exclude the rest of the conversation.
For more information on customisation, see our documentation on Embedded Tweets.
EMBEDDED TIMELINES / TWITTER TO-GO
Replicate any public Twitter timeline on your website with one line of code. Users can expand Tweets to see cards inline, as well as live Retweet and like counts. An integrated Tweet box encourages users to respond or start new conversations, and the option to auto-expand media puts photos front and centre.
Add your own
To create a timeline, go to twitter.com and sign in. Click on Settings, then select Widgets. From this page you can see a list of the timelines you’ve put together. You can also create new timelines.
For more information on customisation, see our documentation on Embedded Timelines.
TWITTER CARDS / PICK A CARD, ANY CARD
Twitter Cards help you richly represent your content within Tweets across the web and on mobile devices. This gives users greater context and insight into the URLs shared on Twitter, and allows Twitter to send more engaged traffic to your site or app. Attach these cards to Tweets for a more engaging experience.
This is the default card. It includes a title, description, thumbnail and Twitter account attribution.
Similar to the Summary card, but also has a prominently featured image with additional details and attribution.
Only displays a photo. No text.
Displays four photos at once.
Displays a mobile app, with a direct link to download.
Add a Twitter card in four simple steps:
Choose a card type. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Add the required meta tags to your page.
Validate your meta tags.
Once it’s approved, Tweet the URL and view your card.
For more information on customisation, see our documentation on Twitter Cards.
