As a website owner, you should always try to use all the tools at your disposal to increase visitor traffic to your website. For many websites, more traffic drives up revenue to further expand business or improve the quality of the services you currently provide. Social media plays an important role when it comes to driving traffic to a website.
Proper use of social media helps businesses in two ways:
- First, it brings visitors and clients from sources other than search engines.
- Second, it gives followers a way to interact with you in places other than your website.
One of the most popular social media platforms for engagement with customers is Twitter. In this post, I'll list the best Twitter widget WordPress plugins that you can start using today. You will find them on Envato Elements and CodeCanyon.

3 Free WordPress Twitter Plugins
If you're not sure about buying premium plugins right now, there are also many free WordPress Twitter plugins. However, they generally have some downsides like fewer features and slow support—if it's provided at all.
Now, here are some free WordPress Twitter plugins that you can try.
You can use the Custom Twitter Feeds plugin to display customizable and responsive tweets. The content of these tweets is also crawlable by search engines. The source of the feed can be any user or a specific hashtag.
The WP to Twitter plugin helps you post tweets from WordPress to Twitter. You can also do a couple of other things with it, like displaying your recent tweets in the sidebar.

Tips for Using Twitter Widgets and Plugins
There are a couple of things that you should be aware of when using these WordPress Twitter plugins on your website.
1. Don't Fill Your Website With Twitter Feeds
It may sound tempting to add Twitter feeds from different accounts and hashtags on your webpages because you get automatically generated content. However, don't overdo it. The feeds have to add some value to the website. If the visitors only wanted to see the Twitter feeds, they would just go to Twitter!
2. Don't Put All Your Content Behind Social Lockers
It is also important to not put all your content behind a social locker. Use it only when you have something unique and useful to offer. If every article on your website is behind a social locker, people will just start visiting your competition.
3. Don't Use Too Many Social Sharing Buttons
Unless you are focusing your marketing campaign exclusively on Twitter, you should not put the tweet, follow, mention, and other such buttons on every page. This, when combined with like and follow buttons from other networks, will become very distracting.
