Embeddable Tweets – What do they do?



Just testing out Twitter’s new “Embed this Tweet” feature. It lets me embed a tweet within my blog post. Here’s my example:

 

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?

    Looks good, where do you find this feature?

    It is tricky to find. Here’s how:
    – on a tweet, click the posted time (ie., 1 min ago) link
    – then click “Details” so you get the screen with the single tweet
    – the “Embed this Tweet” is below the tweet

    Neat idea. Unfortunately, all these features only seem to appear if I am viewing the post right on your website, rather than through Google Reader.

    I like it!  I’ve often wanted to do just that.  But I do wish it showed up when viewed via RSS readers like Google Readers.

    I’m not finding it working with Blogger – I remember mention long ago about not being able to use javascript in posts, only in layout widgets; maybe that problem continues.
