Great article on embedding tweets.

I'm not sure I would call this "adding a Twitter API".

You're embedding a JavaScript file, which then loads your most recent tweets. So all the hard work is handled by the JavaScript file.

The Twitter Rest API is something different. You can read about it at

Basically you interface with the API by sending HTTP requests.

There's some great guides on the internet that show you how to interface with the Twitter REST API with Python, C# or JavaScript.
