Twitter provides rich devloper API's. You can check that here and create your own. Else you can use the one twitter provides. Something like

<a class="twitter-timeline"
href="https://twitter.com/twitterdev"
data-widget-id="YOUR-WIDGET-ID-HERE">
Tweets by @twitterdev
</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
window.twttr = (function (d, s, id) {
var t, js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src= "https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
return window.twttr || (t = { _e: [], ready: function (f) { t._e.push(f) } });
}(document, "script", "twitter-wjs"));
</script>

  • Nice! thanks @Amal I will try it out then give you the results. Question is, do I add it to the page layout code? – Ngeshlew Dec 2 '14 at 16:08
  • after putting the script and clicking on the home page, it disappears. Why? – Ngeshlew Dec 8 '14 at 12:02
  • Did you saved the page and published/approved it? – Amal Hashim Dec 8 '14 at 12:55
  • What I did was to add a text file into the assets folder (twitter.txt), secondly I added a Content Editor into the Home Page and linked it. It worked! – Ngeshlew Dec 8 '14 at 14:22

  • I would go with the third one because of how valid it seems to work but the issue is, it's complex. – Ngeshlew Dec 2 '14 at 16:17
