Embedding and quoting dynamic content is always a need when you want to refer someone’s writing or broadcast on your website or in your blog posts. That dynamic content can be a YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo video, a YouTube playlist, and can also be a Pinterest pin, but embedding Tweets in blog posts is the thing people always do to refer sayings and announcements from individuals to companies and brands.
So, how can I embed Tweets on my website or blog posts? Will it need an additional plugin or extension on my blog or website? No, it won’t need any extra plugins to install. We’ll see how to embed tweets in the least steps in this short guide.
