After embedding your Twitter feed on your blog you will notice that may show upwards of 10 tweets or more, which takes up a lot of space in your sidebar. I recommend only showing 3-5 tweets in your feed. To shorten your Twitter feed, you can adjust the embed code by doing the following:
1. Go to the Text widget where you’ve pasted the embed code from Twitter. You will see something similar to this:
2. The next step is to insert a line of code to change the number of tweets showing in your feed. Insert the following line of code after “twitter-timeline” (data-tweet-limit=”5″) so it now reads like this:
You can change the number in quotation marks (data-tweet-limit=”5″) to any number you want based on the number of tweets you want showing at a given time. For example, if you only want 3 tweets showing, your new code will read like this:
3. Save your changes to the Text widget and you’re done!
