Adding the Twitter Timeline service to your landing pages

Important: Twitter recently discontinued the creation of Widget IDs, which were previously used to embed timelines in Oracle Eloqua. Any existing timelines, which use Widget IDs, continue to function normally. For new timelines (profiles, likes, lists, collections), use the timeline URL.

The Twitter Timeline service allows you to embed a Twitter timeline in your landing page to display relevant tweets.

Below are examples of supported timeline URLs:
