Twitter (Feeds source)

You can use the following Twitter content formats as sources in Feeds.

Username: Pulls in the tweets of any public user by entering in their Twitter username. You can find the username in the URL of the Twitter page. For example, the username of is "finalsite." Enter this into the field to pull in the Tweets from Finalsite.

Hashtag: Click the "Hashtag" option when adding a new Twitter source into Feeds and type in any hashtag (you do not need to include the # symbol). This will display posts from any public users who post with that hashtag. Please keep in mind that Feeds cannot obtain historical posts for your hashtag due to restrictions of the Twitter API, but it can obtain most new posts going forward. 

List: You can pull in the tweets from a Twitter list. To do so:

  1. Find the URL of your list, such as:

  2. Copy and paste the username and list name part of the URL, like so: mashable/lists/social-media.

  3. Put an asterisk in front of it, like so: *mashable/lists/social-media.

  4. Copy that whole thing, including the asterisk, and request it as a new Twitter username source.

The list will pull in all the tweets from that source and, if any new tweets get added to it, it will pull those, too.

Search Term: If you would like to display posts based on a general search term, rather than posts that contain a specific hashtag, you can do this in Feeds. When adding a new Twitter source, select the "hashtag" option, then type an asterisk followed by your search term (for example: *finalsite).
