How to Embed a Twitter Timeline
January 31, 2017

There really is a lot of work running and managing a web site effectively. Not only does your site need to be updated with new and fresh content, but then you have to update the many different social media pages to get the word out. It is quite helpful that some of these social media options can be combined so your presence is directly connected to your website.

I am sure that you have visited other websites and noticed that they have a live Twitter timeline also showing on the page. This means that whatever they have posted on Twitter now shows on their website as well.

This timeline can also be added to your MemberGate pages in a fairly painless way.
