Hello, I have a unique problem to solve for my NPO. My site provide contents for school courses. Each course has its own pages and the instructor needs to display timeline from the course’s twitter account for each course. The course twitter account is saved in database. What will be my choices to solve this issue?
- Embed a twitter widget. To my knowledge, that requires a data-widget-id which can only be retrieved from twitter setting. The instructors simply do not want to do that. I can help but it is a maintenance nightmare.
Is there a way to get data-widget-id simply via user name (screen name) via REST API?
- Call REST API to get timeline. This route seems to involve a lot of custom code to render the returned data on web page. I’d like to know if it actually is how people handle the dynamic content. I may need to research a little more.
I’m new to twitter integration - any help would be appreciated!
