Description

It's currently not possible to embed a Twitter Feed in a blog.mozilla.org blog sidebar:

- WordPress does not allow user-written JS or HTML iframes so I can't directly embed a Twitter feed
- "Social" plugin does not work with Twitter for some reason. Every time I try to add a Twitter account, Twitter asks me to authorize the application, it does get authorized, but the Social plugin doesn't see my user account for some reason. Server-side misconfiguration?
- "Twitter Tools" plugin depends on "Social" plugin, so it also doesn't work
- "Wickett Twitter Widget" is no longer supported by its author (replaced by a "Jetpack" plugin) -- it was last updated in 2011. It is unable to load a Twitter feed in 2015
- "Twitter Facebook Social Share" doesn't load Twitter feeds

Can we get a plugin able to display a Twitter feed? :)

Hello!

We have a lot of widgets and a lot of plugins all over the place. 
We are mid audit of these plugins and in the interest of not installing more, I'm putting a hold on this request. 

I will revisit this bug in a month or so once we are in a better position to help you. (And I'm sure we can)
The Twitter widget provided by Jetpack should work, though it embeds an iframe that some ad-blockers will block. 

The other plugins mentioned above are mostly outdated and should be removed, if they haven't been already.

I'm not sure anyone cares about this anymore. The theme has changed since this bug was first made. 
If I'm mistaken, feel free to ping me either here or on IRC.

This referred to the blog I had at https://blog.mozilla.org/vdjeric but I haven't been an employee in over a year and that blog is deleted now :) Still, having a Twitter widget might be useful for other Mozillians
