Twitter is now letting developers add timelines to Websites with an update to its Publisher Website that lets them plug in a URL and get an customized feed.

Available at Twitter’s Publisher site, the feature lets you add the URL of a Twitter feed (like The Next Web) to get an embeddable code for your Website. All you have to do is paste that code into your HTML, and you’re good to go.

If you’d rather have a customized feed, there’s good news: it lets you choose a light or dark theme, link color and restrict sizing.

Twitter’s latest feature is meant for brands who like to use Twitter as their de facto social feed. While you could always use Collections, this new method makes it dead simple to add a real-time feed to the site, and you can add as many as you like.

If you’d rather not have a main feed show up, you can also use lists, likes or a Collection URL.
