    1. Dear Colleen and Liz,

      The Twitter timeline does not show up on WordPress.com because the said Twitter Publish tool produces a code that contains scripting language, which is not allow by WordPress.com

      May you have a lovely week ahead!

      Yours sincerely,

  1. How strange that WordPress has removed the Twitter Timeline block. However, I still have it on the widget bar on my blog, and it seems to be working just fine. I see the ‘Twitter’ widget block and ‘Click To tweet’ widget blocks are still there, though.

        1. I didn’t have the Twitter time line block until I added it yesterday. One day is disappeared. While on the pro plan, I found a plugin to add a Twitter timeline. When I went back to the premium plan that disappeared. So, I found this work around for the Twitter timeline. It used to be in the Legacy Widgets. Now if you use the twitter block as a widget it gives you a link to click, that’s it. Someone else told me that WP took the Twitter timeline widget out because the coding wasn’t compatible or something.

          1. I wondering if those of us who already had the Twitter Timeline block on our blogs will be able to keep it or if it will stop working. I guess I’ll have to wait and see and keep my fingers crossed that it will continue to work. But at least I have a backup in case it stops working. Thanks, Colleen.
