    Question Embedding Tweets In The Forum

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone here knew a way to embed tweets into post instead of copying the text and pasting it. I swear I have seen a few people do it on here before.

    When I say "embed" I mean have the tweet itself in the post like you can do with images or videos.
    __________________________________________________ ________________________________________________
    Here is an example... This is a random tweet I found on google images, so I am using the IMG code (That code does not work on tweets you see on twitter for some reason)


    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________________
    I think it looks better having it look like that instead of having the text itself pasted into a post
    Example

    To clarify: The current plan is for the Giants to interview Jackson Thursday morning in NY/NJ after John Mara returns from owners meetings.

    Twitter has become a "source" where news is broken there before articles on NFL.com, ESPN, etc.. I think it would be much easier for people to read the tweets if they were able to be embedded instead of reading the clumped together text from the tweet itself. I also think it looks a million times better too.

    If anyone could help me out with this I would greatly appreciate it. I suppose you could screenshot the tweet itself and then use the IMG code to embed it, but there has to be an easier way to do it.

    on the tweet you want, click the "..." button to get the embed code.... copy and paste embed code into your post..

    So you don't have to put anything around that like [img] picture URL [/img] or URL for the video (obviously, with no spaces)?

    I tried doing something similar to that and it wasn't working for some reason... Is something disabled for some reason?
