Assigning Widget ID for embedded lists



Twitter seems to have switched over to a heavily simplified HTML embedding system. However I have several widgets already set up using the previous widget-id system and have specifically programmed my site to work with them.

Is there a way that I can create new widgets using the configurator instead of the new dummy system?


Thanks @niall. Quick follow up question: is it possible to filter out replies and/or retweets from the embedded lists? It’s a relatively small list (60 people), but it’s like the wild wild west with all the fringe content bleeding out.


An embedded list timeline may be added to your webpage using the widgets-js JavaScript library and either enhanced markup or a JavaScript factory function.

You may generate the necessary markup at Or you may specify a list data source and a target element in the twttr.widgets.createTimeline JavaScript factory function.
