Embed tweets in your WordPress blog

Tech trick on Wordpress and embedded Tweets

Tech trick on WordPress and embedded TweetsBlogging software provider WordPress has added a new feature that allows users to embed tweets.


Although the site actually released a tool for this feature several months ago, the new Twitter Blackbird Pie feature makes the process much easier.


Users need to copy a tweet’s URL, and then paste that link into a line by itself in the editor to have it embedded.


These tweets are then converted into full tweets, meaning they are of screenshot quality, and include a link to the tweet, the source and the option to retweet.


While Twitter has its own feature for embedding tweets, the WordPress feature is easier, more convenient, and will allow you to embed tweets quicker than using any other plugin.
