It now takes fewer clicks to embed a tweet on a news site or blog.
Twitter announced that it has improved its embedded tweets function on Tuesday (22 January), making “embedded tweets more engaging, useful and fast”.
Embedded tweets now load faster and appear more like they do on Twitter as they now display photos. Note that only photos displayed on Twitter will show as a full picture when embedded, Instagram pictures, for example, will show as a link.
To embed a tweet you now click on ‘more’ and then on ‘embed tweet’. Previously it required you to click on ‘expand’ and then ‘details’ before being given the embed option.
You can also do the same with the latest version of TweetDeck.
