The latest word-press has tweet embedding already enabled.
So it’s really easy to embed a tweet into a word-press post.
Embedded tweets are also interactive directly from your site so your readers can follow you, retweet, reply or save your tweet to their favorites without even leaving your site. There are may other uses for embedded tweets and I will update this post to reflect these over the next couple of days.

Here’s my own tweet of the post that you are currently reading but I use another example complete with explanation after this for you to “test” out for yourself.
How to Embed a Tweet into WordPress bit.ly/M2UuJ4

Simple step by step adding tweets into your wordpress posts.
1. Simply click the time/date stamp of the tweet that you want to embed and this will open the tweet up.
2. Then copy the URL of the tweet from the address bar
3. Paste the url directly into your word-press post.
I have pasted the url into this post as an image so you can see how it will look in your own post and as you can see the tweet is embedded already
*****DO NOT use <a href-”url”>tweet</a>
4. Publish your post to see the actual tweet.
And hey presto…
this is what an embedded tweet looks like in a wordpress post.

Go on ….click to follow Ann Smarty or retweet her post. It’s really cool and you will still be on my site too. :-)
If you think the explanation in words and images doesn’t quite help then …never fear… I created a video to make it simple for you. Unfortunately I do not have a microphone so cannot add sound…. on the plus side you can sleep well not having to listen to my squeaky voice anyway. :-)….( it cant get any worse can it surely ?)
Hope the video helps…
Guess a microphone is now on my shopping list hmm…
