I am trying to embed a single tweet into a lightning component. I have a static resource to load the widget.js file of twitter. On my cmp file,

Please see sample code below:

//cmp file the script is a widget.js off of https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
<ltng:require scripts="/resource/widget" afterScriptsLoaded="{!c.twitterLoaded}"/>

<div class="container">
  <aura:unescapedHtml value="{!c.embedTweet}" />

   twitterLoaded : function() {
      //assume that I have set the embedTweet attribute

      if(window.twttr) {

This throws an error because twitter is trying to append a script onto the page. I was wondering if anyone knows of a workaround in embedding single tweets?

A sample of the error here

widget:1 Refused to load the script 'https://platform.twitter.com/js/tweet.ec328711a3507dfee1de85f104e9a308.js' because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive: "script-src 'self' chrome-extension: 'unsafe-inline' 'unsafe-eval' https://ssl.gstatic.com/accessibility/"

There are many ways to get this done.

There is a sample Twitter feed that I have used in a class:


We get the data via apex. I am sure that you can adapt that sample to your needs.

  • Thank you for this. I was originally thinking about doing this, but we don't necessarily need a class to get tweets per request. We really just want to embed the tweet. Also, we're embedding tweets from multiple users and not just one.
