Post Twitter Threads in your WordPress Posts with Jetpack

Sattalat Phukkum /

It’s been fairly easy to embed a Tweet within your WordPress posts. If you’re looking to add a Twitter thread though, it’s been a bit more difficult.

Fred Haas had a fix for me this past week when were were talking and introduced me to Jetpack’s feature (in versions. 8.7 and beyond) where you can unroll a Twitter thread into your posts.

Here’s the resource he shared with me. You can check out all the details and there’s a short video at the bottom of the post that shows you the unroll feature in action.

Make sure you’ve got Jetpack installed and updated and give this feature a go.
