    Can We Please Embed Tweets in ITL?

    I know that over time several of us have raised the question of why we are unable to embed tweets in the Inside the Lines forum within an active thread but those requests can get lost and go unseen.

    So, I'd like to make an official request to have the ability to embed tweets in the ITL Forum. Is there perhaps a specific reason that we're able to do that in each of the other forums but not ITL? If that's not the case, can a Mod work some magic so that we'll have that ability? Thanks.

    I was the one doing most of the raising of that question, so I'd like to officially second your request. Please?

    Maybe if we bump this thread once in a while someone will finally notice? Please?

    Until Jim F somehow arrives at this thread, then takes action, I would simply suggest the following:

    Hyperlink + quote feature.

    Or it could simply be limits in this forum's software. Are other discussion/chat websites able to embed tweets?

    Brad, this site is able to embed tweets in many of its forums, just not in ITL (and, I believe, some others). For instance, I can embed them here:




    My workaround is to clip the tweet with Imgur's capture function, and post it as an image. But it's more work, and not as functional for the reader. He can't click on an included link or #hashtag, for example, or decide to follow the 'tweeter.'

    Is it Tim or Timothy? I know one was Ok, the other, you didn't like, so my apologies.

    That doesn't look embedded. When I think embedded, it's like a picture or a youtube video, like there's something there to show that it's a tweet.

    I personally think that the word "tweet" is pretty weird. I keep thinking of this little guy (and his clumsy pursuer, Sylvester):
