    ThumbsUp Embed a tweet inside a post!

    I have just added a new feature that I hope will be useful, fun, and interesting for us this season! Don't overdo it, but this is a pretty neat feature.
    You can now embed a Tweet in a forum post!

    HOW?

    Get the number of the tweet and put that inside the tweet code as seen in the example. You find the number by finding the link to the tweet on twitter and taking the number from the link.
    For example the link to a tweet might be:

    Code:
    https://twitter.com/TideFansJessN/status/879215245302091776
    So in this case use 879215245302091776 inside the tweet tags.

    If you are in the advanced reply / post mode (where you see 3 rows of icons just above the textbox where you type) you can just press the 't' button on the bottom row and insert the numbers inside the tweet code to embed the tweet.

    Here's an example to see what it will look like!

    This is just awesome. I've screenshot and uploaded tweets and it's very annoying. Will be using the crap out of this feature.

    This will make the press conference threads much easier for everyone.

    Outstanding...Tweets are a pain to quote as they are.
