Embedded timelines will only show content from accounts that have public Tweets. Content from accounts with protected Tweets are not compatible with any Twitter embedded timeline widgets.

Step 2: Enter the URL of the timeline or Moment you’d like to embed.

Step 3: As soon as you enter your twitter url, your display options will come up as below. You may choose timeline or twitter buttons (like Follow, Mention, Topic) you’d like to embed.

Step 4: Customize the design by specifying the height and theme (light or dark) to match your website. 

Step 5: Once you like the look of the embedded Timeline, copy the code provided by clicking the Copy Code button.

Step 6: Create a page in your Oracle Apex Application.

Step 7: Create a region (PL/SQL Dynamic Content) to that page and copy and paste the below code into the region.

htp.(<div style=”overflow: auto; direction:rtl; height: 420px;”><div>);

ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”></a> <script async src=”https://platform.twitter.com/

end;

Note: Replace tkarkuvelraja with your twitter name.

Output: (Embed a Timeline)

That’s it. This is mind blowing.
