twitter official wordpress plugin

Twitter has now finally released an official Twitter plugin for WordPress that brings a bunch of Twitter functionality to your site easily.

Twitter since its inception i.e. from 9 years of its launch, Twitter has never released an official plugin to make WordPress and Twitter go hand in hand. Until today.

The official Twitter plugin for WordPress helps sites powered by WordPress embed Twitter content and grow their audience on Twitter, announced Twitter in its official blog post.

The new plugin will bring whole lot of features; it automatically generates Twitter Cards for your pages, enables Twitter Analytics, embeds video and adds a tweet button to posts in the admin interface.

Here's what the new Twitter WordPress plugin does out of the box:

  • Lets you add a one-click sharing button so visitors can tweet out your stuff

  • Lets you more easily embed tweets, and customize the color scheme of embedded tweets to match your site's look. You can change the link color, border color, and pick from a “light” or “dark” look

  • Automatically builds Twitter Cards when you share stuff to Twitter

  • Helps you add a follow button to your layout

  • Tracks ad conversions if you’re running a Twitter Ad campaign for your wordpress blog

Within few hours of its launch, WordPress is reporting that it already has over 159,000 downloads.
