Realtime GitHub Readme Tweets

Hey now you can integrate your tweets into github readme in realtime.
I have created a api which will fetch your tweets and give you a response in picture format.
A tweet looks like this:


Let's See how to integrate it in your readme.

Step 1: visit

Step 2: Enter your twitter username

here you have 2 choices. You can either enter your twitter username or you can enter a specific tweet url.

  • Tweet username will always return a latest tweet in svg rendered form
  • Tweet url will return a specific tweet in svg rendered form

Step 3: Copy the markdown code and paste it in your readme file


Step 4: Costumization

You can costumize tweet with url parameters.
Here are some:

Property Code Work
?text=fff text color
?border=000 border color
?width=700 width of image rendered
?bg=333 background color
?title=F5D76E title color
?icon=F5D76E twitter icon color

Modify the url with the above parameters and you will get a costumized tweet.

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


  • Do not use # in color code. Use F5D76E instead of #F5D76E
  • For colors you can refer to COLPIC or any color code website.

Step 5: Commit and Done.

  • PRO TIP 😎: You can also use this api in your website. Just use the api url in your img tag.
