Feature Friday: Embed This Tweet
Yesterday Twitter rolled out a feature that I have been requesting for what seems like four or five years now. I am so happy to be able to embed tweets in my blog posts. So I'm celebrating by making "embed this tweet" the featured feature this friday.
When you open a tweet onto its permalink page in the new version of Twitter that rolled out yesterday it looks like this:
If you look right above the "reply, delete, favorite" links, you'll see a link that says "Embed This Tweet". If you click that, you'll get something that looks a lot like the embed option in YouTube (the all-time king of "embed this media").
I did that on my twitter love tweet from yesterday morning and when I embed it in this blog post, I get the following:
i love twitter more and more every day. it is the ultimate embodiment that less is more.

I love it! The real live tweet with all the important tweet actions right in the post.
Thank you Twitter. You made my week. And I dig the new UI/UX too. So simple. Less is more.
Just In Case You Didn't Know: USV is an investor in Twitter. I was on the board for four years. I love Twitter.
