Embedding Tweets Done RIGHT, with EmbedTweet
Third party developer shows how it's done.
05 MAY 2010, THE NETHERLANDS
SummaryToday, Twitter unveiled their service called 'Blackbird Pie', which should make it easy for anyone to quote tweets in their weblog. Not so much. It stills requires going to another site to get the HTML. Fortunately a third party developer decided to create his own solution, which allows for automatic(!) including of tweets.
You only include it once, then every time you link to a tweet it will automatically be converted to an embedded tweet.
Don't want to auto-embed all tweets?
No problem! Just turn off automatic embedding and apply a class to every link you do want to include.
Unlike Blackbird Pie, EmbedTweet works for Tumblr as well!
"It provides all the interactive functionality such as retweeting and replying." Marc Köhlbrugge, Founder EmbedTweet
"If you want to quote / embed tweets on WordPress, try @EmbedTweet. Came out a month ago...much simpler than new Twitter tool." Ken Yarmosh, Mobile Product Guy and user of EmbedTweet
"zOmg!! EmbedTweet is teh awsumest way to embed EPIC tweets into yur website!" Stefan Borsje, Co-founder at PressDoc
EmbedTweet is a super-easy way to embed tweets in your website. It's much faster than taking and cropping a screenshot. Also, it keeps the tweet interactive so your readers can easily retweet it or reply to the original author.
