How To Use Twitter Custom Timelines

Twitter Custom Timelines

CTs allow you to control exactly which Tweets appear in a column on Tweetdeck. So if a particular event catches your eye as newsworthy you can tailor your CT to show what you consider to be the most relevant Tweets. These CTs can then be customized, shared and embedded on your website. This is a great way of increasing interaction on Twitter and sharing current, interesting and breaking news stories from any niche or subject.

Take a look at the video and give it a go. If you mess up you can always delete your custom timeline and start again!

And feel free as always to comment on, share and distribute this post if you have found it of use using the buttons at the bottom!


I’ve made a quick video below working through the process.

  • Add a new column on Tweetdeck by clicking the '+' button
  • Name your new Custom Timeline
  • Populate with selected Tweets
  • Share, edit and post to your blog if needed!
