Promoting your Twitter Page in WordPress with a Lightbox Popup

So last week after we showed you how to create amazing lightboxes with OptinMonster – a WordPress popup plugin. We also showed you how to add a facebook promoter lightbox in WordPress. Some of you asked if it was possible to do the same with twitter. The good news is that it is. Although OptinMonster is the way to go when it comes to customizing popups, you can also use the Twitter Like Box Plugin that allows you to add a lightbox with the twitter follow button inside of it.

First, you will need to install and activate the Twitter Like Box Lightbox Plugin. Once you have activated it you will see that a tab is added to your admin panel with the label “Arevico Plugins”. Click on it and select Twitter Likebox from the dropdown menu. This will bring you to a screen where you can customize your plugin.

Input your twitter username and select how many followers you would like to be displayed. Also make sure to choose which pages you want the lightbox to pop up on and how long it should delay before appearing. Once you have done this click “save changes” and you are good to go!

  1. @BenBonilla Don’t think they are tracking whether you liked the page or not. I think they are leaving a cookie for who has seen it and closed the popup.

  2. Quick question. Once they have followed you on twitter will the plugin continue to pop up on them in the future? It does not mention that. Appreciate a response please. Thanks. =)

  3. Hi,

    This just works better for Twitter (and another one for facebook) but are there any notable updated plugins or code hacks if we need to display simple html in a lightbox? Say, perhaps just a ‘thank you’ note?

  4. That looks good.

    I know that you won’t believe it, but I’ve just signed up with twitter – this plugin could be the way to go.

    Many thanks.
