In early December, Twitter added a new feature for all Twitter users – the ability to embed tweets into websites or blogs. Emdedding a tweet into your website or blog is a feature that I’m really excited about – because now it takes all of the GREAT tweets you’ve possibly missed and gives users the ability to share them with the world outside of Twitter.
What this means for website owners are more opportunities to be social – and spread other users content that you found interesting. Along the way, this means better chances for building online engagement – you can also expect to pick-up a few new followers as well!
Key points about embedded tweets:
- You can reply, retweet and favorite directly from an embedded tweet
- You can follow a user from an embedded tweet – no extra clicks off to Twitter
- If you’ve embedded a video, they play directly in the embedded tweet
Here’s how you can embed a tweet into your website or blog.

Recently, I was at the Apple Store having my phone replaced when the person next to me came in with an unresponsive Apple iPad 2. Unfortunately, they were instructed that they would have to reinstall all apps, music, contacts and more.
Having had a number of Apple products repaired, I can attest that it is VERY time-consuming to have to reload apps, music, contacts and more onto a device, let alone reorganize them in folders. Luckily, I backup my device every week or so.
