Embedding tweets would be cool

DusdaDusda is ashamed of this postSLC, UTRegistered User regular
People post tweets in quotes or just link to them directly quite a bit, especially in newsy threads. It would be cool if they could just be embedded directly, like YouTube. If a users posts a link to a tweet like so:



Twitter has simple embedding markup Vanilla could use that looks like this:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet">
    <p>Limiting the sim city beta to one hour sessions is fucking evil.</p>
    &mdash; cwgabriel (@cwgabriel) <a href="https://twitter.com/cwgabriel/status/295332059986145280">January 27, 2013</a>
</blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Or you can use their JSON api to get the tweet like this: https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/oembed.json?id=295332059986145280&omit_script=true.

Which makes an iframe that looks like this:

Widget.js accommodates for desktop and mobile browsers, and is responsive to it's container. There's more stuff about it here.

and this sig. and this twitch stream.

    I believe @Smart Hero suggested this at one point, and will be happy to see this.

    Is there something special you need to do for it to work?



    Doesn't work. What am I missing?

    looks like it worked to me

    it may help to try clearing your cache?

    I wish that someway, somehow, that I could save every one of us

    Oh wait, now it worked, I didn't do anything. Weird.

    EDIT: yeah there's some weirdness with it. Like...when I first post, it just shows the link, if I reload it shows the tweet.

    If I edit a post with the tweet in it, it just shows up as a link again when I save the edit, but if I reload again, it will show the tweet.

    Yea, it only kicks in during page load, not when you first post it; it basically scours the page for twitter links. No worries though, everyone that sees your post will see it proper every time.

    I think its good how it is. Having the video autoplay with no sound is kinda like having a gif.

    FYI if you are using any kind of extension that blocks external requests (such as Disconnect for Chrome) then this won't work. You have to whitelist the site or disable the extension to get it to work.

    Obviously this is working as intended all around, just wanted to give a heads-up.
