Interesting. It lets you:
- See my Tweet in a more “twitter-like” format
- follow me
- reply, retweet, favorite
It’s sorta like you are on Twitter … outside of Twitter. Even cooler is this: since it’s not a screenshot, viewers/readers can actually click and follow/respond. It’s a simple way to prompt Twitter users to do that next step. Nice!
So – what do you think of Twitter’s new Embed this Tweet feature? Will you find ways to use it?
