SummaryEmbedTweet makes it easy to embed tweets into your website. Include one piece of code and all your tweet-links will automatically be converted into interactive representations of the actual tweet. It's like YouTube's video embed for tweets!
Nowadays, a lot of online conversations happen on Twitter and weblogs and for a good reason: it's free, easy and can target a large audience. Yet, linking these two media isn't always as easy.
It's easy to link to a blog post in your tweet, but there's no hassle-free doing it the other way around: linking to a tweet in your blog post. Most people either settle with a screenshot, which makes for a tedious task and denies the reader of interacting with the tweet. Other people just quote it and link to the actual tweet, which makes the quote look like any other quote, denies the reader of interacting with it and hides contextual information (e.g. when the tweet was posted and who the author is).
Now there's finally a much better way! EmbedTweet.
Installing EmbedTweet is super-easy. Just download the WordPress plugin you can find on our site. If you aren't using WordPress you can install the code manually as well.
EmbedTweet is a free service. To cover server cost we might at one point in time ask for voluntary donations or we might offer a premium-plan for heavy-users.
In the future EmbedTweet will add extra functionality such as detailed statistics, easier customization and integration with several Twitter-related services.

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.
Embedding Tweets Done RIGHT, with EmbedTweetToday, 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.
