To add a tweet, use following code: ‎<twitter screen-name="screen_name" tweet-id="tweet_id" />

To add a profile timeline, use following code: ‎<twitter screen-name="screen_name" />

To add a list timeline, use following code: ‎<twitter screen-name="screen_name" list-slug="list_slug" />

To add a likes timeline, use following code: ‎<twitter likes-screen-name="screen_name" />

Alternatively, full URL can be provided using parameter href=.

Most parameters provided by Twitter, such as height=, width=, and lang=, are supported.
