From the menu, select Embed Tweet.
Then It will give you a code , Please copy the highlighted code
Open InDesign Document, click Object>Inset HTML
Paste your code here, click OK
It will look like this
Then Publish Online,
Yes, I followed those exact methods last week when trying to get it to work by myself--both with a twitter feed and an individual tweet. I can get the embed code to appear to look like it works normally in EPUB Interactive viewer (see below images. The Twitter timeline feed looks more normal than the single tweet), but when I hit Publish Online, it's not consistent with appearance. Sometimes the pages appear totally blank in Publish Online, and sometimes it's just the hyperlinked materials from those embed codes that appear.
But here's the final "Publish Online" version: https://indd.adobe.com/view/65d13262-df13-4331-aa15-88460620ab1e
As you can see, pages 3 and 4 where the twitter pages should be hold only the hyperlink to the timeline feed on page 3. I'm stumped as to why it looks like it'll work in EPUB, but not when I fully publish it online.
Also, why does the single tweet embed only include the text and hyperlinks and not the full tweet image as well (with the handle and follow button and reply/quote/like buttons)? Why does it not look like the Preview image of the tweet that is shown in that window where you get the embed code when it's Published Online?
Thanks very much for your time and help!
This is an expected behavior when you embed tweet it will only pick text and links, as shown in above screenshots.
Here is the original tweet.
and this is how it looks on Publish Online.
However it will be good suggestion which you can mark. Please share you suggestion here Feature Request/Bug Report Form
Hi, sorry I know this is an old thread but how did you embed a Facebook profile into your indesign document please?
It's been a long time since I've had to think about this so I re-opened my file I was playing around with this in.
First, go here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin/
Then click on the blue "Get Code" Button. That will open up this pane:
Click on the "iFrame" tab. That's the HTML code you'll want. That'll look like this:
Copy that code.
Now, go into InDesign and draw a box.

(sorry, I hit "add reply" too soon.)
Once you have copied your iFrame code, go into InDesign and draw a box. Go up to "Object/Insert HTML" and that will open up an "Edit HTML" widow. Paste the HTML code into that "Edit HTML" box. This will start a new blank box (where it says "This is arbitrary HTML". Hit "OK"
That should pull up a screen cap of your Facebook Profile into that new box.
You can move that box with the Facebook Profile where you need to on the page and re-size the box and the image inside as needed. Then you can see that it works on the EPUB Interactive Preview.
Then hit "Publish Online" and it should work!
That should also work with any YouTube or Google map you might want to embed. You'll just have to got to Youtube/Google and grab their embed code and then use Object/Insert HTML to get them to work. Hope that helps!
Thanks so much for getting back to me quickly. This has been puzzling me all day.
You're very welcome! Best of luck with your projects!
