Use the Twitter web part

When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page.

This article describes the Twitter web part, where you can show tweets that are relevant to you or your audience right on your page.

Notes: 

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

  • If you don't see this web part in the web part toolbox, your administrator may have disabled it.

  • The Twitter web part is not available in SharePoint Server 2019.
