A lot of bloggers complain about not having time to create enough content and engage their readers at the same time. While I do recommend to all bloggers to get involved on their own blog and answer questions posed by their readers, sometimes you won’t have enough time to do just that. That’s where integrating a service such as Twitter in your blog comes in. By adding Twitter widgets to your blog, you not only get people talking with you on your blog and on Twitter, but you also make your blog more dynamic for your readers.
Twitter Search Widget is one of the most popular Twitter widgets around. It allows you to add a relevant forum to the end of your posts to get involved on and engage with others talking about your topic. Adding a Twitter search box to your WordPress blog is not that difficult. All you have to do is log on to Twitter, grab the appropriate widget, and choose the right settings for your widget.
You can also go around the interface that is provided to you by Twitter and manipulate the code to get the job done. You can define your search term, title, and subject easily by changing the appropriate code in the below code snippet. You can also change background color and how tweets are displayed on your blog.
So should you add Twitter search to your blog? Popular sites such as Huffington Post have already tested the concept. If you are not adding Twitter to your blog for the sake of doing it and approach it strategically, there is no reason you shouldn’t use Twitter widgets on your blog. But make sure they don’t take away from community.
