How do you incorporate a Twitter feed into a LibGuide?
Twitter recently changed the way widgets are created. Updated instructions for incorporating Twitter widgets into LibGuides are below.
The easiest way to incorporate a Twitter feed into your guides is by embedding a Twitter widget into an Embedded Media/Widgets box. Here's how...
(1) Go to https://twitter.com/settings/widgets. (You have to have a Twitter account and sign in.) Click on Create New.
(2) Enter the name of the Twitter feed you want to embed and the domain of the site or sites on which you plan to embed the widget. There are also options to embed tweets a specific user has marked as favorites, a public list that you own or subscribe to, or a feed based on customized search results.
You can also adjust the height of the widget and the color of the links and give it a light or dark theme. Twitter also lets you opt out of "tailoring Twitter" (Click on the question mark to decide if you want to opt out.)
(2) When you're done, just click the Create Widget button. Then copy the embed code that is provided.
(3) Create a new Embedded Media/Widgets box. Click Add Media / Widget Code and paste the code from Twitter into the box. Then click Embed It.
Here's how it should look when you're done!
