How To Add a Twitter Widget Feed to Your Tumblr Sidebar

Ever wanted to add a twitter widget to your tumblr blog so everyone can follow your latest tweet updates?

Besides adding a tweet this button, this twitter plugin can be added anywhere within your tumblr theme, as long as you paste the code properly.

The twitter feed being displayed in your Tumblr blog can actually be customized to show only your favourite tweets. Follow the tutorial below:

  9. Now go To your Tumblr Blog >> Customize Appearance >> Edit HTML.
  10. Paste the Twitter Feed Code into your Tumblr Sidebar, or any other spot you consider convenient.
  11. Update Preview >> Save >> Close.

NOTE: Do not mistake getting a twitter feed to show your own feed and status updates with the Tumblr integration with Twitter through the app, since the latter works the other way around, sending your Tumblr published post updates to Twitter. There is though, a method of connecting Twitter and Tumblr that gets your twitter dashboard stream into your Tumblr dashboard (it’s good as long as you don’t follow that many people on Twitter, otherwise it can become a real nightmare because of the constant updates.)

    Wondering if you can help. I have tried this and it works in the preview of the site but when I save this and go to my tumblr, it shows the heading ‘tweets from Doric Design’ but no tweets. Any ideas where I’m going wrong? I can see the tweets in the preview. Thanks, Jen
