Embed Latest Tweet

I’ve been tweaking this site over the past few days, and one of my thoughts was to put my latest tweet in the sidebar. It’s easy enough to embed a timeline, but I couldn’t easily find a way to do just the latest single tweet.

I did spend a bit of time looking into an API solution, but that seemed like more effort than I was willing to go through.

Turns out it’s really easy.

I pasted the code below into a Custom HTML sidebar widget, replacing Username with my actual Twitter username.

<a class="twitter-timeline"
Tweets by @Username</a>
<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

And that was it. Up pops my latest tweet.

Turns out I really didn’t like it there, so I turned back off. It may come back later, but either way I’m glad I didn’t spend too much time messing around.

What’s it look like?

Since it’s not in the sidebar for now here’s what it would look like.
