How to Embed Tweets in WordPress
Open Twitter, right-click on Expand and then click on Copy Link Address.
Now paste this URL in your content area. Just make sure that the URL is not hyperlinked and on its own line.
You can now check out the front-end for the tweet, which includes follow button, reply, retweet and favorite button. These action links will be automatically embedded to the tweet.
This method is very useful to add tweets in WordPress, without tweaking anything or using a plugin.
