Tumblr makes it possible for you to enhance your blog posts by embedding HTML code in them. While it normally takes a programmer to write this code, Twitter generates timeline code that you can use for free. A timeline displays public tweets that you or another Twitter member makes. If you want to entertain, educate and inform your Tumblr visitors using minimal effort, spend a few minutes creating a Twitter timeline gadget for your Tumblr blog.

Visit your Twitter page, click "Settings" and then click "Widgets."

Step 2

Click "Create New" followed by "User Timeline" to view a page that helps you configure the way your gadget looks.
