How to embed Twitter posts in AMP page – WordPress




We can embed Twitter posts in AMP in two ways:

1. Using AMP plugin for WordPress

This plugin is developed by ‘Automattic‘, the corporation behind WordPress.com. It provides an easy way to embed Social media posts to WordPress blog that is compatible with both web and AMP version.


To embed a Twitter post in your WordPress article, simply add the URL of the Twitter post in WordPress editor in a new line:
eg:- https://twitter.com/AMPhtml/status/885634330868850689

After publishing the article, you can see that it appears perfect for the web as well as the AMP version.
