It’s easy to embed posts from many popular social media sites into a WordPress post or page without using any special embed code or plugins — just add the link to the post in the WordPress editing screen in Text mode. It’s always better to keep things simple in WordPress, so it’s a good idea to use the built-in WordPress support rather than using plugins that need to be updated or embed code that may cause conflicts and makes the code on your post of page longer and more complicated to edit.
If you’re looking at a single Instagram post in a browser, you can just copy the URL in the location bar and paste it into WordPress. If you’re looking at a page with multiple posts, follow the three dots to get an option to Go to post and then copy the URL from the location bar.
When looking at a page of tweets or a single tweet in a browser, the unlabeled More menu has an option to Copy link to tweet.
