Adding Twitter Feeds to Website and Widgets


#1

Hello, my name is Nina and I work for a company called FindTheBest (http://www.findthebest.com/).

  1. FindTheBest is a place to research a product, service, person, company, etc. Here’s an example of what I’m currently working on: http://celebrities.findthebest.com/. On every celebrity profile, we want to include their twitter feed (looking exactly like the widgets on https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/new).

  2. We also let publishers use widgets from our site in their articles (check out the example at the bottom of this page: http://www.foxbusiness.com/business-leaders/2015/07/09/is-this-summer-swift/). We’re interested in adding twitter feeds to these kinds of widgets as well. Here is an example of what the Taylor Swift widget might look like with her Twitter feed included: http://www.findthebest.com/w/kzws7XTfJpb?&external_preview=1&data-script-version=true&rnd=2088198563.

I read the Developer and Agreement Policy and couldn’t find anything we’re violating but I want to ask here to make sure. Are adding twitter feeds to our site and adding twitter feeds to widgets we give to publishers both in line with Twitter’s policy?

I really appreciate the help! Thank you.

Hello and welcome on the forum!
I do not work for Twitter but have some knowledge of the ToS and Developer Agreement and I can’t find anything in there that would, from my point of view, forbid the use of the widget in the way you are using it. In my opinion, I think you (and your company) should be fine using it in the described context.
