How to Embed a Series of Tweets from Twitter into a WordPress.com Post Without Duplicates

If you are trying to embed a series of tweets from Twitter on your WordPress.com site, sometimes it includes the parent conversation, showing duplicates tweets and making it hard to read.

That typically happens when you are trying to post your tweet like this:

https://twitter.com/thetwitterusername/status/thetweetid

Here’s how to remove the duplicate tweets from your WordPress post or page.

You need to embed the tweet with a shortcode like this

[ tweet https://twitter.com/thetwitterusername/status/thetweetid ]

(but remove the space after the opening bracket and before the closing bracket)

and add the

hide_thread="true"

to hide the duplicate parent thread.

Here’s the syntax for it. Just copy and paste this code into your post or page editor and replace the URL (the part that starts with http) with the URL of your status:

[ tweet https://twitter.com/thetwitterusername/status/thetweetid hide_thread=”true” ]

(but remove the space after the opening bracket and before the closing bracket)
