Add Twitter Widget to WordPress Blog

Displaying Twitter posts on a WordPress Blog is as easy as adding the Twitter widget to the WordPress blog.

Login to your WordPress blog and click on My Dashboard.

On the left hand panel of My Dashboard click the small triangle down arrow just to the right of “Appearance” to open the Appearance menu.

Find Widgets and open the Widget menu with a click.

Find the Twitter widget on the list of Widgets.

Click and HOLD and drag the Twitter Widget over the the side panel of your My Dashboard and drop the Twitter Widget in the location of the list of other Widgets that appear there. When you drag the Twitter Widget to the right you may not see anything in the right hand column. “Bump” the dragged Widget against the top of the window in order to push (scroll) higher in the window. Keep bumping until you arrive at the place to drop the widget.

Answer the questions that are asked by the window that appears after you release the Widget with your mouse.

See the previous blog for a video of finding and selecting widgets.

  2. Thanks for the information

  3. I know this blog is a long time ago, but I am now trying to attach the Twitter widget (it is now June 1, 2011), and I do not show a Twitter widget in my Widget link. Is it only available on certain types of accounts?
