I want my Twitter timeline to appear automatically on my site!

I have never thought of such a thing, until I visited a specific website.

One day, I was building a website for my client company and found out…

The Twitter timeline was embedded in the top of the sidebar on their previous website.

I thought “Isn’t Twitter already out of date !?”  “Nowadays, so many people enjoy Instagram, not Twitter ! ”

But I found out the company’s previous website did not have any blog posts, so they used the Twitter timeline as their latest information section.

Well, it was a good idea for the website which does not have any flexible pages, like the company’s previous website.

How is the rate of use of Twitter?

Then, I checked the rate of use of Twitter.

Survey by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (Japan)


Wow! I didn’t know that ! Twitter is still popular in Japan!

And I remembered, someone said that “Twitter is very popular in Japan, compared with some other countries”.

So I also decided to use Twitter as my information tool, which provides latest information automatically on my site.
