I’m loving a lot of the new features of the #NewNewTwitter.
ONE thing that I think is amazing is that we can now generate copy and paste-able HTML markup to render a Tweet on our sites and blogs. For example:
I liked a @YouTube video youtu.be/5zzjiAlH43U?a Celtic Woman – Carol of The Bells

I’m totally digging this! You can also choose the option to simply post a URL to a specific Tweet, like this:
For some reason, the fully functional Tweet is not always rendering (on my end at least) as it should be in Chrome, Firefox, or IE on my computer. It seemed to be behaving as if it were a Javascript issue.
If you don’t have Javascript enabled, you’ll see the Tweet without the reply/retweet/etc…buttons (per dev.twitter.com). Though I have Javascript enabled, it is still not rendering correctly every time. I’ll explore and try to figure out why. It may be a Blogger issue. But at any rate, what a WONDERFUL feature!!!
Interestingly, I entered the HTML code as a gadget (see near the top of my blog) and it rendered beautifully the first time and every time. This could be useful if you don’t want to embed lots of Tweets, but rather draw attention to only one for a period of time. I’ll leave the “Celtic Women” one up for the holiday season, for example.
I then embedded a DIFFERENT Tweet into my blog post and it rendered beautifully. Anyhow. We’ll figure out all the kinks.
