Twitter + Ghost

How to use Ghost and Twitter together

Ghost works with Twitter automatically in multiple ways to ensure that your content is fully optimised for the world’s most popular social news network

Integrated structured data

Ghost contains integrated global settings and user settings to associate your site, users, and individual posts with specific Twitter users via automatic structured data meta tags. This allows for rich data to appear on tweets about your site, as well as association with your official accounts.

Custom Twitter cards

Fine-grained control over the structured data for each post is also available via the post settings menu of every post and page within Ghost, so you can always determine exactly what gets shared.

Embed Tweets in your content

All content from Twitter works with Ghost automatically via our OEmbed integration. All you have to do is paste a URL!

Copy the URL of the tweet

Grab the URL of the tweet you’d like to embed into your post or page

Paste it into the Ghost editor

When you paste it into the Ghost editor it’ll be automatically transformed into a rich embed of the tweet you selected

Publish your post

That’s all there is to it! Ghost interacts with Twitter via their OEmbed API in order to retrieve all the correct settings automatically and serve your tweet in the best way possible.
