Is there a way to embed a single tweet from a supplied user without authentication?

Hello!

All I want to do is embed the latest Tweet from a supplied user in my Javascript code. It’s easy to embed a timeline, and it’s easy to embed a single Tweet if you have a Tweet ID… but can I supply a Twitter user ID and get the embed code for a single Tweet by that user without needing to use OAuth?

You could embed the timeline and set the count parameter to 1?


#3

Hmm. That’s true, but Tweet Timelines don’t show Twitter Cards like quote tweets, @ reply conversations, polls, etc.


#4

No, at this stage they do not, the only alternative would be an oEmbed API call to get the Tweet embed call - sorry.


#5

Ah, bummer. Is there an appropriate place for me to put in that feature request?


#6

This would be the place. I don’t think that would be a high priority given our API roadmap but we appreciate the feedback and request.
