Twitter has always been a popular social media platform, where people can come and share whatever content they´d like. If you are looking to incorporate your Tweets on your website, we would like to give you a few, in our opinion, the best tools out there.
There are many reasons you would want to include Tweets on your site, one of the most famous ones being: wanting to showcase other people´s opinions on certain topics, products, or services. This also allows your site´s viewers to visit your Twitter account and grow the number of your followers. This creates a sort of a loop where it all comes together.
A person goes and views your site to be redirected to your Twitter account and also visits your Twitter only to be directed to your site. If you’re ready, let us take a look at some of the best Twitter plugins we think would be a perfect fit for most sites.
1. Smash Balloon Custom Twitter Feeds Pro
Smash Ballon Custom Twitter Feeds Pro makes incorporating Tweets onto your site as easy as possible. The setup but also its use is really simple and easy to figure out, even for those of you who might not have that much experience with social media integrations.
Thanks to its features, the Tweets can be completely edited and customized. In addition, it’s also possible to display as many tweets as you want. The tweets can be pulled from any Twitter user out there, including an unlimited amount of hashtags. All of the tweets can also be viewed from mobile devices, thanks to the mobile optimization feature.
They can also be displayed in a multi-column layout, where you can create grids and display your tweets in them. If this is not your cup of tea, and you think it will overflow your site, you can always create a slideshow of the selected tweets.

2. Feed them Social
Another great plugin that you can use when you want to create not only Twitter but also other social media feeds. Just like the one above, Feed Them Social is effortless to use, the number of feeds is not limited, and you can customize them any way you´d like.
A really cool thing is you can add like and follow buttons around your feeds so people who view them from your site can directly like the Tweet or follow your account without having to leave the site.
