Embedded Twitter Feed on My About Page

Wow twitter, embedding my twitter feed (called a user timeline) on my about page was super easy.

To embed your own user timeline:

Start at the twitter site. Click the Gear Icon -> Settings -> Widgets (on the left) -> Create New -> User Timeline.

Configure it the way you want, then copy/paste the script into your page. This is just as easy as embedding a youtube video! I really like the option of controlling which domains the timeline will display from. In my case it is setup to only work from laurencegellert.com.

Here it is in action:

Not exactly the biggest programming challenge in the world, but I like it when I find something that works easily and wanted to share.

By the way, since this is a WordPress site, I am using the Raw-HTML plugin to wrap the embed tag so it renders correctly.
