Embedding Tweets made easy on WordPress.com

In WordPress.com,WordPress.org on November 5, 2010 by Arno Tagged: , , ,

This is a great new feature on WordPress.com: embedding Tweets on your blog. Easy.

Just grab the url from an individual Tweet and paste it on a line by itself ad the result looks like this:

The cool thing about this new feature is that it gives you the full content of the original Tweet, with a username linking to the profile pages, hashtags linking to search pages and additional info like the timestamp, the Twitter cliƫnt used. You can also immediately retweet the embedded Tweet.

If you are on a self-hosted WordPress.org, you can use the Twitter Blackbird Pie plugin, which was modified for this new feature on WordPress.com.
