Twitter.com has been taking steps towards improving its features and functionality. Currently, 21 brands are using its revamped profile page features. Notice the horizontal Big Mac bar beneath McDonald’s Twitter bio area.
Also, the ability to designate 1 tweet as your featured tweet, keeping it at the top of your Twitter.com page, is coming soon.
One new feature all Twitter users can now enjoy: Embed a tweet onto a website.
Steps to Embed a Tweet
1. Go to Twitter.com and locate the tweet you want to embed.
2. Click “Open” on the right side of tweet, and then “Details“.
3. From there, click “Embed this tweet” to see the embedding options.
4. Choose your text alignment and code type, and then copy and paste the HTML into your HTML editor view.
When you view your post or page, you’ll see your embedded tweet.

The new embed feature means you no longer need to capture screenshots of tweets you want to share. Though the widespread roll out of a brand bar for your Twitter.com page is probably a more impressive change for most users.
Do you expect to use the embed tweet feature?
At last! That’s a great feature. I remember writing a post about tweets once, and I had to painstakingly print screen each tweet I wanted, then cut and paste it accordingly and include it in my post as a JPEG. Being able to embed it will make it so much easier. Thanks for sharing!
Very good information. I’ll share this!
DUDE!! I never knew how to do this!! Thanks!
awesome!! This is great news!
Wow! This is cool!
I would *dearly* love to be able to do this. According to twitter, this only works on iOS and Android devices. Do you have some magic ninja trick if I’m using Chrome browser on a PC?
Unfortunately, no. I personally have a Mac. 🙂
