Streaming Twitter Feeds

Published on: Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Adding live stream twitter feeds to webpage has been made easy with the new widget function in Twitter.

Two steps:

First, log into your twitter account and under settings, choose Create Widget. There are four options: specific user, etc… For an event, the search option is the best. Define a hashtag, or the hashtag you will define for a certain event, and then create the widget. Once the widget is created, copy the html code.

The second step: embed that code into a webpage.

That is all there is. Make sure to keep the widget under your twitter account.
