    Hi,

    So im trying to implement twitter into the footer of a website at www.blchost.com but so far can only implament it via a twitter button. But i want it to show the latest tweet without clicking any buttons. On the page at www.blchost.com/contact.html at the bottom footer you can see a section which has the twitter icon then beside it has Retrieving latest tweet... that is where i would like the tweets to be displayed.

    Any Suggestions on how to acheive this?

    You could try this plugin: latest-twitter-updates-with-date-and-time
    It allows up to 20 tweets to be displayed but I expect you can reduce the quantity to one.

    it is very simple
    copy this code replace twitter username here text with you twitter username.
    and thats it.


    <a class="twitter-timeline" href="https://twitter.com/twitter username here" data-widget-id="465664849259663360">Tweets by "@twitter username here"</a>
    <script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>



    There is another method provided by twitter itself.
    Just go to this URL and create widget code. thats all
    twitter.com/settings/widgets/new
