Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template generates an external link to an account at Twitter.

Multiple hoax and "fan" accounts have been discovered; please make a particular effort to verify the authenticity of any official links. Legitimate Twitter accounts are usually named in reliable sources, such as newspaper stories, about the subject, or linked by other subject-controlled sources.

Usage[change source]

One parameter:

{{Twitter | ID }}
{{Twitter | id= ID }}

Two parameters:

{{Twitter | ID | NAME }}
{{Twitter | id= ID | name= NAME }}

Using Wikidata property P2002:

{{Twitter}}
{{Twitter | name= NAME }}

Examples[change source]

One parameter[change source]

This parameter will be the ID string used in the URL at Twitter. When one parameter is used, the link text is the title of the Wikipedia article where the template is used.

URL:

https://twitter.com/Twitter

Usage:

{{Twitter | Twitter }}
{{Twitter | id= Twitter }}

Output:

Twitter on Twitter
Twitter on Twitter

Since "Twitter" is the name of the Wikipedia page you now are looking at, the link above appears as "Twitter on Twitter" on this Wikipedia page. The lead name will change according to the name of the Wikipedia page.

Two parameters[change source]

The first parameter will be the ID string used in the URL at Twitter. The second parameter will be used as the link text.

URL:

https://twitter.com/AcadiaU

Usage:

{{Twitter | AcadiaU | Acadia University }}
{{Twitter | id= AcadiaU | name= Acadia University }}

Output:

Acadia University on Twitter

No parameters[change source]

When used without an "id" parameter, this template will call data from Wikidata, if available. If none is available, the category Category:Twitter template missing ID will be applied and an error message will be displayed.
